B.M.I.D. Water Main Shut Down - Saturday January 30, 2016

Update 9:00am

Water service has now been restored to BMID customers. Thank you again for your patience and understanding while these upgrades and improvements to our water supply system are completed.

You may experience cloudy or murky water once service has been restored. To correct, please run your taps until the water runs clear.

Domestic water supply for the month of February during the course of construction improvements, will be provided from the Rutland Water Works distribution system. Please be aware you may notice slight changes in the characteristics of your water during this period.

Update 6:00 am.

Crews are currently re-loading the system and expect all water service and pressures to be restored before 8am.

Thank you.

Update Sunday 1:00am

Thank you to all customers affected for their continued patience.

The water service interruption is taking longer than planned due to unforeseen construction issues that were encountered. Crews are still on site doing everything they can to get the water on as quickly as possible, throughout the night and early Sunday morning.

Your cooperation and understanding is appreciated while we complete these upgrades and improvements to our water supply system.

A big thank you to BMID crews and Mearles Machine Shop who have been working around the clock to restore water service as quickly as possible to customers affected by the water shut down.

Yours truly, Black Mountain Irrigation District
