Details: The City of Powers public works crew discovered a minor leak on a main water line on July 7. Over the weekend the break became larger and began to lose a significant amount of water. Due to the exacerbated leak and the impact to the water treatment plant, the public works crew initiated emergency repairs to a water main line today, July 12.

The utility clerk called all affected customers, crew did door-to-door notification to customers that were not reached via phone. The system also notified the email subscriber list, media subscribers, shared to the local Facebook group and posted in local high-traffic areas (city hall, library, post office, and market). Public works are currently working on repairing the leak. Testing will be conducted before lifting the boil advisory. The water system expects to receive the all-clear notification from the lab no later than Monday, July 17. No food service facilities, RV parks or other licensed facilities impacted. Language access was not required.
