Continued ban on lawn watering this weekend for the City of Lander
The City of Lander water treatment plan has started making water and filling our tanks at a low level. We are able to keep up with the drinking water demand but we do not have enough made to keep up with lawn irrigation or fire flows. Mayor Del McOmie asked that the residents are patient while we are working to get our treatment plant up to full scale water production and refilling all of our storage tanks. "The water restriction is about the health, safety and welfare of our citizens. What if we had a catastrophic fire in town without sufficient fire flows to put it out?" says McOmie.
Please stay tuned to the City of Lander Facebook page and website for additional updates. Please don't water your lawns unless you are clearly marked as being on well water. For instance, City Park will be watered through our well system this weekend. The City will notify you when the restriction is removed and the water systems are operating at full capacity.
