BIG SPRING – The Water Treatment Plant will be shut down for 36 hours to perform essential upgrades on Tuesday night.
We're told the shutdown will be from Tuesday, March 11, 2014 at 9 p.m. through Thursday, March 13, 2014 at 9 a.m.
Our radio partner in Big Spring, KBYG, is reporting that to ensure that there is sufficient water for basic living necessities, the City Manager has temporarily banned all non-essential water uses beginning on Tuesday night. Outside watering, washing vehicles, filling of swimming pools, flushing water lines, wetting ground for construction or any other non-essential uses of water will be strictly prohibited.
Officials say residents may experience low water pressure, additional air in the water or loss of water.
