Water Restriction | Stage 1

Good morning everyone.  We finally received some good news and after receiving good samples back, we are back online with all of our pumping wells.  We are terminating the Emergency Water Usage order and reducing to a Stage 1 Voluntary Use Restriction, effective immediately June 22, 2023. 

At this time, there are no mandatory restrictions, it is only voluntary which means we are simply asking people to abide by the days and hours listed, to help conserve water and make it easier for us to stay pumping.  With the growth of our customer base, we are upgrading our facilities and pumps to help with this, but when emergencies happen, they just happen. 

We did have some scheduled repairs going on, which did not get completed in time before the usage slammed us.  This wasn’t a fault of our own doing, it was a supply chain issue that we had zero control over.  During this time, we had an emergency happen with another well, which caused all of this.  Again, not something we planned on, it just happened. 

We appreciate everyones help during this time.  If anyone has any questions about any of this, please feel free to call the office or email me:  paul@bcwcid2.org

Thank you.

Paul Hightower, GM

ATTENTION:  Due to having 1 well out of service for upgrades and now having another well go down, we are forced to enter into a Stage 4 Emergency water restriction. Please limit your water use as much as possible until we can get the necessary repairs made. We are sorry for all the issues, certain things are out of our control but we are working as fast as we can to get it rectified. Thank you.
