Water to be shut off for few hours today
Some area residents will experience low water pressure or no water at all.
Southwest Water Authority will be doing maintenance in the New Hradec Booster Pump Station north of Dickinson today and water will be turned off at about 2 p.m. for about two hours.
Rural residents living north of Dickinson around the New Hradec and Manning area townships 141, 142, 143 and 144, Ranges 93, 94, 95, 96 and 97 will be in the area of the water shut off.
Lee Messer, water district manager for Southwest Water said the shut off is necessary to install a pump to improve residents' water pressure. It is recommended that residents fill water containers to get through the time without water.
