The Emergency Management Department is monitoring the situation closely and reviewing the data to determine the extent of the water shortage. Residents on wells who are experiencing water shortage issues are strongly encouraged to contact 311 to report a water shortage, as this will allow the municipality to understand where shortages are occurring and supply drinking water.
