Water Available to Residents

Residents have access to water currently at two locations:

  1. The water pump behind the town hall by the old garage is non-potable, which means it is not safe for drinking.
  2. There is a hose set up behind the school at the garden area. Please make sure the valve is off when done. This water is filtered for drinking.
