Occasionally Public Water Supply District #3 will issue a precautionary boil water advisory. This does not mean that the water is necessarily contaminated. PWSD No. 3 will issue a boil order to make sure our customers are safe. Notification could be made by any of the following ways: telephone, email notification, door hangers, or on local radio stations.

The purpose of the Wellhead Protection Plan is to protect the drinking water source for Public Water Supply District No. 3. Our Wellhead Protection Area consists of mostly residential home owners and a few local businesses. Educating our customers on ways they could help protect our public drinking water facility is the best way to help keep the public drinking water from being contaminated.
PWSD No. 3 is putting together a Wellhead Protection Committee. If anyone is interested in becoming part of a committee to protect our Public Drinking Water please inquire at our office.
Consumer Confidence Report (CCR)
All people have the right to know what is in their drinking water and where it comes from. The Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) describes the quality of water people are consuming within our district. It also provides an opportunity for Public Water Supply District No. 3 to educate consumers about the sources and quality of our drinking water.
Backflow is the reversal of water flow from its normal direction. This reverse flow can send a customer's contaminated water back into the public system's safe drinking water supply.

A "cross-connection" is any physical connection or potential connection whereby the public water system is connected, directly or indirectly, with any other water supply system, sewer, drain, conduit, pool, storage reservoir, plumbing fixture or other waste or liquid of unknown or unsafe quality, which may be capable of imparting contamination to the public water system as a result of backflow or back siphonage.
Water Pressure Reducing Valves
Public Water Supply District No. 3’s water lines are gravity feed. Therefore we do not have a way of reducing water pressure to individual homes. Reducing the water pressure in your home can be done by adjusting your water pressure regulator. Every home should have Water Pressure Reducing Valves.
