Hardness Notice

October 02, 2020

On Tuesday, September 22nd we attempted to repair a Multiport Valve in our Softening System at the Water Treatment Plant.

Due to unforseen circumstances during repairs, a delay has occured that will cause hard water to last through at least Oct. 6th. During this time, residents can expect to experience very hard water. We ask for your patience while we repair this part of our softening system to better soften the water for you.


Because of this issue, you could experience the following side effects:

  • Mineral Buildup around water fixtures
  • Soap scum on bathtub, curtains, or doors
  • Dry itchy skin
  • Dull scratchy clothing
  • Spots on dishes, flatware, and glasses
