PUBLIC WATER STATUS

No Usage Restrictions

Water in the Dorset reservoir is currently at a safe level and there are no current restrictions on water usage.  Nevertheless, we encourage all users on the system to conserve water whenever possible.

 

The boil order, which was imposed on October 12, 2016, has been officially lifted.  It is no longer necessary to boil water drawn from the system.  In addition, water restrictions, which were imposed on September 18, 2016, have also been lifted.
