Welcome to the Official Website of S.S. Water Supply Corporation!
Please conserve water during the high use season!!
While we all are clamoring for the unofficial start of Summer over Memorial Day weekend and the fun activities that coincide with the summer months, the system is still recovering from the multiple well and equipment casualties from 2022. We have been fortunate that 2023 has so far been a relatively "wet" year, but that is not likely to last; hence the need for continued conservation.
While we were able to replace the motors and pumps in the wells that went out of service last year, a couple of the wells that were affected (which also happen to be the two biggest and most heavily used wells on the system) have just this past week begun to show the need for additional inspection and maintenance. The problem is that we cannot bring those wells down during the high use season which runs from April through late October.
SS Water commissioned the construction of three (3) new wells last year to add capacity and to allow for emergency maintenance as needed, but it takes time to navigate both the state bureaucracy and equipment/personnel availability; the same issues that plagued us during the height of the pandemic. Thankfully the general supply chains have recovered some, but specialized industries like ours are still suffering shortages and long lead times for new equipment.
While we do all that we can to ensure our wells, pumps, motors, and distribution system are all running within optimal parameters, it is just an article of faith that despite our best efforts our equipment will simply decide to not cooperate, and it will happen during the worst possible times. As such, we are asking our Members and customers to conserve as much water as possible, and to avoid using treated water for purposes other than human need and livestock use. SS Water is constantly monitoring the situation, and will implement further water conservation procedures to ensure water availability and distribution system integrity.
Thank you for your cooperation and conservation efforts.
Discolored Water Information and Reporting
Discolored Water Info + Reporting
Water discoloration due to naturally occuring iron in our water source is not uncommon. These episodes tend to occur more frequently during the peak water usage months of April-October, whenever we have water main breaks, or if first responders are using fire hydrants. More information and instructions on how to report water discoloration issues can be found by clicking the link above.
