Water line breaks; non-essential use banned

A large water main at 10th & Nolan broke today, affecting water service to large portions of the city. "We have staff on site and they will remain on site until service is restored," a city press release stated. "You may experience some inconveniences such as no water, low water pressure, dirty water or additional air in the water, etc."To ensure that there is sufficient water for basic living necessities, City Manager Todd Darden has temporarily banned all non-essential water uses until this main is repaired. Outside watering, washing vehicles, filling of swimming pools, flushing water lines, wetting ground for construction, or any other non-essential uses of water will be strictly prohibited during this time.
