Attention Rural Water Project Customers
Water use on the Little Blue Public Water Project for June 25, 26, and 27 remained steady at 200,000 gallons a day. A level where the project is not asking for any voluntary reductions. The Project cautiously maintains the request at Stage One: Water Watch, asking for heightened awareness of demand to maintain integrity of the system and avoid spikes in flows which might near the limits of the agreement with the City of Fairbury. Please look for the next update early afternoon Wednesday, June 29th.
