Reduced Water Pressure until October

Spoke with the head of the water department today. The Slocum Road Water Tank is off-line for extended maintenance that will last until mid-October. The tank is being cleaned and painted.

While the town is aware that the water pressure is low in our area, one of the highest points in town, and they are trying to change over some pumps to boost the pressure, it will likely remain low until the cleaning/painting is completed.

There should be adequate pressure to run a shower on the second floor of homes, but there will not be enough pressure to run lawn sprinklers while using water elsewhere.
