The City of Big Spring is working around the clock to get the water problems resolved.
CONSERVATION is the #1 priority at the moment. Public Works Director Shane Bowles tells KBest News that anytime there is a freeze, there are going to be numerous pipes leaking, and that is currently the case. “Every drop counts right now. Citizens need to conserve their water.”
Bowles went on to say that in addition to city crews who are on several sites, Big Spring now has a utility contractor in town assisting in the repairs, and another expected to arrive Monday.
The City is currently pumping out as much water as possible, but due to the numerous leaks, there are many residents who aren’t receiving ANY water.
There is currently not an estimated time of repair as more leaks are springing up.
You are asked to please conserve “every drop” today. Please delay laundry, bathing, and anything else that involves using water until this matter can get resolved.
