Water Pressure Update

IMPORTANT UPDATE: A broken flange located in the main water well feeding the community was the cause of the low water pressure. It has now been repaired. However, as a precautionary measure, please do not drink the water unless it has been fully boiled. Tomorrow, the water will be tested for potability.
We will continue to update our community as it progresses.
