Once again I asked chief Duff and Manager Matt Sandidge ￼to help me come up with a good ￼plan!!!! we got a good solid plan. We have local people that have helped us as usual!!! #ElRenoStrong Brian Albright and Paco￼ from Cavin￼‘s￼￼ wrecker!!! We will ￼￼ have a trailer full of potable water and it will be located at the swim pool at Legion Park !! Please￼bring your buckets and you can come get some water don’t forget we are still under a voluntary boil!!! but this water can be used as drinking water..., we got the containers from Helena chemical they’re brand new containers never been ￼used ..... we broke the seals they’re letting us use them first for water. We will also have bottled water at City Hall at the police station and also at ￼ the fire station off of 27th St. All this will happen right around ￼2 o’clock thank you so much to the Dub Bomhak and the boys ￼ who are out in Clinton loading up cases of individual bottled water from Pepsi ￼right now !! all these people have donated their time and their energy to make this work for everybody thanks again. Really appreciate Brian Freeman and Angela at Helena.
Reminder, since it is now above freezing you no longer need to drip your faucets! With this, we can continue to conserve water by also not running dishwasher, washing machines, etc.. This is crucial for us to get our levels back up. We are all in this together!

From Mayor White - Saturday the 20th 10o’clock update. If you can from noon to 5 o’clock if you can turn your water off temperatures will be above 33!!!! so we can conserve water. ￼ (please help your neighbors and friends...... turn your water off once it gets above freezing)

As we head in to the weekend, we would just like to remind residents to conserve water where they can. We are making gains and with the temperatures rising this weekend, we will continue to make gains in our water levels. We still need your help conserving water as we continue to build up our system. Our infrastructure took a toll this week through a series of events, including the following:
- Water main breaks due to the temperatures February 14 and 15.
- OGE Rolling Blackouts
- Significant Leaks/Breaks on private large water customers
- Dripping/running water to keep house lines from freezing
- Small isolated Private Line Breaks
We need your help, we are all in this together!

From Mayor White - Hopefully this helps explain everything. Our generators are working!! everything at the plant is working. The main problem is we are barely keeping up because we are having people run their water. And you need to continue to do that!!!! Our normal catch up ￼ time is when you all sleep it helps us catch up. We have not had that catch-up time. So when OG&E did not notify us about the rolling black out that put us further behind.!! The system is up and running it’s gonna takes some time to pressure up it’s not like electricity. I hope this answers all the questions I’m not gonna sit here and answer all of the silly ones I’ll try to do the best I can ￼. But we do have backup generators and they are working and we do not have anything wrong with the plant!! Thanks for your patience pray for all the men and women working for the public works the streets the parks the fire and police and everybody else they are working so hard!!!
