All Prairie Grove Utilities customers:
Operations crews have been routinely monitoring the water system. Continued high demand on the water system has depleted the water storage capacity to approximately 55%.
We are asking all PGU customers to continue to conserve water and discontinue all non-essential water use, which includes irrigation for landscaping (lawns, trees, flowerbeds, etc.), washing vehicles, washing buildings or driveways, filling or maintaining swimming pools, and water for decorative fountains or ponds (a full list of non-essential water use activities can be found on page 3 of the ANRA Drought Contingency Plan).
If high demand continues and water storage drops below 30% capacity, it may become necessary to turn off the water system for a period of time in order to maintain the water treatment system and replenish water storage capacities.
We will notify Prairie Grove Utilities customers in advance if the water system will need to be shut down as well as the anticipated duration.
Please contact our office if you have any questions.
