Equipment Failure Leads to Plea for Water Conservation in Archer City

Update: The equipment repairs have been completed and the Archer City Water Treatment Plant is back online now and operating.

Archer City, Texas - Archer City officials released a statement Wednesday evening requesting that Archer City residents, and Wichita Valley Water Supply customers that obtain their water directly from Archer City, to please conserve water on Wednesday night due to equipment failure at the Archer City Water Treatment Plant.

According to officials, the current water supply in their storage facilities should be adequate for tonight if customers will use water for essential purposes only.

Officials ask that residents to not draw up excess water for storage as this only puts a strain on the current water supply.
