Dear friends, neighbors and colleagues - 

As some businesses begin to reopen over the next few days, remember that there are strict guidelines for how to do so safely. Employees and customers should wear face coverings and maintain at least 6 feet of physical distance. Please also review any industry-specific guidelines, and do not enter any business if you are feeling sick.

Take care,

Darin Atteberry, City Manager

Time-of-Day (TOD) On-Peak Hours Shift Today

Returning to Work & Water Quality
When building occupancy decreases significantly (as it may have throughout the COVID-19 Stay-at-Home Order), the water within the building’s plumbing system may deteriorate. Utilities continues to ensure water in our main lines is high-quality and safe. However, customers may not know to flush their personal water service lines and internal plumbing. Make sure to ‘flush’ your facility’s plumbing lines to ensure you are receiving the highest quality water.
