A water issue occurred in the Town of Murphy. The situation is being fixed.

The Town of Murphy is continuing to work to repair the water main at the 19/64/129 intersection in Murphy, but it is encased underneath the road, making it difficult to get to.  We are doing everything we can to get the town's distribution system back fully operational.  The rain is making it even more difficult.  We appreciate everyone's patience and cooperation. Please continue to conserve as much water as possible.  Thank you.


Please conserve water at this time.
