11:00 AM UPDATE: The water supply situation has been resolved. Normal water usage can resume, thank you to everyone who conserved during this time.

The situation started at 4:00am this morning when a transfer switch between the utility feed and diesel generator malfunctioned causing damage to the system.

Adequate water pressure was maintained throughout the morning and no boil water notice will be issued.

Original Message:
WATER SUPPLY EMERGENCY - Conserve water immediately until further notice for those located within the City of Grant

Due to an electrical issue at the City of Grant well house, the City is unable to pump water. The water tower contains a limited supply of water. This is sufficient to keep the system pressurized for a limited amount of time. Please conserve water until further notice. Ways to conserve water includes not washing dishes, clothes, bathing, showering, etc. 

Water system operators and electrical contractors are on site to assess the situation. Thank you for your cooperation.
