Water Emergency Cancelled for Independence; MG County Rural Water Districts #1, #4 & #8; & MG County Consolidated #1.

2:30 AM, November 25, 2016 – The State notified the City that testing indicated that the City could start drawing water from the intake shortly after 1 AM this morning. Our plant has started production and we are asking high volume users, such as businesses and industries, to wait until 4 AM or after to start utilizing high volumes of water. For all other residential or commercial normal volume users, you may resume utilizing water at this time. Because our citizens heeded our previous requests, we were able to maintain enough pressure in our system to avoid a boiler order for City of Independence, Kansas residents; Montgomery County Rural Water Districts #1, #4 & #8; and Montgomery Consolidated Rural Water District #1. Thank you for your patience and assistance during this emergency water crisis.
