Rycroft Water Update

 

August 15, 2016

Aquatera Operators reported a significant improvement in the water quality over the weekend.

We will continue to flush the distribution system and depending on where you are, you should expect a return to normal conditions in the next couple of days.

Aquatera reported an issue with two of the valves, which has now been corrected.

A formal update to Council will take place on August 23.

We’d like to remind you that the water has been safe to drink. We will continue to closely monitor the water quality.



*********************************************** Rycroft Neighborhood Barbecues

Over the next 8 weeks, the Village of Rycroft is happy to be sponsoring 4 separate barbecues for their residents. The village will bring barbecues, hamburgers & hot dogs right into each of 4 areas, beginning at the south-east side and working toward the west. They are looking forward to getting into the heart of the neighborhoods and getting to know the residents and families on a one-on-one basis. Each of the barbecues will be set up in a local park allowing children to play and families to visit. We encourage residents in each area to get involved and make this their own! Talk to your neighbors, invite them out! Do you know an entertainer or artist? Invite them out to enjoy the people as well. Bring a yard game out. Do you have that recipe that everyone wants? Make the best brownies on the block? This is your time to share! We invite you to add to that as you wish - let's do this together! The first of 4 events will take place in the park on the corner of 45th Street and 45th Avenue and they hope to see residents from the South East portion of town (46th Street and East). The second barbecue will be sponsored on Wednesday, August 31st and will move to the west... details will be posted in the paper and online prior to that date...

The grilling begins at 4:30pm
