[ARCHIVED] Mandatory Lawn Irrigation Shutdown

The City of Cheney is enacting a mandatory lawn irrigation shutdown for residents and businesses. On June 30th the City lost one of its largest production wells due to mechanical failure. Since June 30th, the City’s water reservoirs have been reduced to critically low levels and therefore must have an immediate lawn irrigation shutdown to replenish the reservoirs.  It is permissible to water vegetable gardens and flowers, but you are asked to use water wisely.

It is anticipated that this well will be repaired within the next couple of weeks. If everyone complies with the lawn irrigation shutdown, then reservoirs should be at a safe level to possibly provide restricted, limited lawn irrigation use next week. We will keep you informed of the status of reservoirs and well repair.
