Prairie Grove Utilities – Extreme Winter Weather Update #6December 25, 2022
The water has run out, and we’ve shut the system down for the night.
We’re going to have it back on in the morning at 8am sharp, but we’re ending the day today with significantly less than yesterday.
The thaw that happened this afternoon almost doubled the draw on the system and we’re still seeing that draw now despite several of you finding leaks and fixing them, and our crews also fixing one service line leak and finding several customer side leaks and turning meters off.
It’s going to be a scramble in the morning to find all the additional leaks that this draw on the system would indicate.
If we’re unable to locate a significant number of them quickly, we will likely be out of water again midday tomorrow.
We very much appreciate any help you all can provide in checking your properties for leaks again in the morning after the water is back on.
We’ll be back in the morning.
