UPDATE #2: Residents in the Village of Rycroft remain under a boil water advisory and have temporarily shut off water service to sections of the area to continue trying to fix a second leak found early Wednesday morning.
UPDATE: Officials in Rycroft are asking residents in a certain section of the village to conserve potable water, as a leak has been discovered while crews continue to clean up the issues from February 27th.
“The water plant production level is not keeping up with the demand level. A leak has been discovered in the 52nd Street block. Crews are investigating. Users are asked to immediately exercise conservation in their water use.”
No timeline for a full restoration of useable water services has not been made public.
The Village of Rycroft says water services have been restored after a water main break, but a state of local emergency and boil water advisory remains in effect until further notice.
The problems started on February 27th after a “a major loss of water that could not be isolated” was detected. Rycroft had been without consumable tap water since the announcement was made.
In a post on the official Rycroft Facebook page, residents have been told both the state of local emergency and boil water advisory will remain in place until test results can verify the water is safe for consumption.
