News & Notes

Water Plant Repairs

(9/22/17) Water Plant repairs have begun  and will continue for the next seven days. Water will not be softened during this time.  

Residents and businesses are advised that the water is safe to drink without the softening process.  However, residents may choose to not use their dishwashers during this time. 

We appreciate your understanding and patience during this work to allow us the opportunity to make sure our water is of the highest quality. Concerns and questions may be directed to the Water Plant at 832-9146.

Sanitary Sewer Cleaning

(9/25/17) Hydro-Klean will be cleaning sanitary sewers this week.  Residents in the notified areas are reminded to take the following precautions during this time as some homes may have inadequate or partially blocked drain vents which may cause “P-traps” (the little S shaped bend in the pipe under sinks and drains) to be sucked dry.  Should you notice a sewer smell resulting from this, run a little water in your drains to refill the P-traps.  It is recommended that you put the toilet seat(s) down and cover floor drains with an old car floor mat, rug, or carpet scrap on the days that the sewer cleaning is scheduled.  This will minimize any possible splashing of the P-trap water in homes that are poorly vented.  Cleaning will occur as follows:

2nd St: 100-200-300 blocks.
3rd St:  100-200-300-400-500 blocks.
Stockdale St: 800 block.
Prospect St: 100-200-300-400-500-600 blocks
James St: 1400-1500-1600-1700-1800 blocks.
White Fox: 400-500-600 blocks.
Fourth St: 200 block.
Union St: 500-600-700 blocks.
Seneca St: 500 block.
Des Moines St: 400-500 blocks.
Odell St: 700 block.

Hydro-Klean will be done for this season on or before Sept 29th.
