As we proceed through these uncertain times related to COVID-19, our goals include providing safe and efficient services to our community, neighbors, families and friends, while working with our customers affected by the continuing impacts of the coronavirus. To assist in meeting this goal and in an effort to comply with recommendations set forth by the Centers for Disease Control, we have instituted a few measures to reduce contact and allow for social distancing. However, in making these adjustments, we ask for patience to make this work for all involved.

In response to COVID-19, we are focusing on what is most important: our customers, our employees and our commitment to provide electric, water and wastewater services.

To help keep this focus, we are implementing several proactive measures including closing our facilities to the public. Beginning Friday, March 20, all facilities will be closed to customers until further notice. These are unprecedented steps, but the evolving situation demands we respond proactively to protect our community and our critical facilities.
