Residents east of the Walnut River should expect lower pressures on Aug. 7
Arkansas City residents east of the Walnut River can expect reductions in pressure for at least a couple of hours Aug. 7 due to water system maintenance.
The water pressure reduction is due to needed maintenance at the East Chestnut Booster Station, which pumps water across the East Chestnut Avenue bridge to customers in the eastern part of town.
This work originally was scheduled for Aug. 1, but had to be rescheduled for this week instead.
Lower pressures could continue through the day, but should occur mainly between noon and 2 p.m.
Further updates will be provided as necessary.
“We apologize for any inconvenience this necessary maintenance might cause,” said Environmental Services Superintendent Rod Philo.
