1,000 residents may get water back today after 3-day outage
The 1,000 Pine residents without water since Wednesday will hopefully get service back late this afternoon, said CH2MHill Regional Vice President Robert Kuta. A still undisclosed problem knocked out service to about a third of the Pine-Strawberry Water Improvement District’s customers on Wednesday, prompting the district to issue health warnings and appeal to all its customers to reduce usage. A June 19 notice to affected customers in 14 subdivisions scattered around the tiny mountain hamlet blamed the outage on “a combination of mechanical issues, drought conditions and increased demand.”
