Although water service has been restored to the town of Pulaski, residents are being asked to continue to conserve so water pressure will improve faster.
Kim Caudill, administrative manager for the town’s Public Works Department, said the raw water pump station once again has power to pump water to the storage tanks. However, residents will continue to experience low water pressure for at least 24 hours, an possibly longer, as the depleted tanks are refilled.
In order to reduce the amount of time it takes to fill the tanks and restore water pressure, Caudill asks that residents continue to conserve water for the next 24 hours. If water is being pulled from the tank as it is being filled, she said, it will prolong full pressure and supply restoration.
Even though water service has been restored in the town and county, officials remind residents there is a boil water notice in effect, so water should be boiled prior to using it for consumption.
“We thank the citizens of the Town of Pulaski for their understanding and support during this critical situation,” said Caudill.
