***Notice to Little Blue Public Water Project Customers

The Rural Water Project had several empty lines during the recent line break under the Little Blue River. Sampling has been done to assure the water is safe to drink but there is a lot of air in the lines. "Cloudiness" or "milkiness" in the water is due to this air. The Project has flushed several lines but the only true fix is time, letting the air flush out as it will.
