Colton pump back on-line


August 2, 2018

Water use restrictions for Colton were lifted Monday after the repairs were made to the town's number-one pump, and the water reservoir was filled. However, the town is still operating with just one pump and has posted a lawn watering schedule for different sections of town to conserve water.

Colton plans to have repairs on a second well pump finished later this week.

A boil water advisory was lifted Tuesday. The city issued the advisory because the system lost pressure when the two wells went down, and loss of pressure can allow contaminants to get into the system.
