The Colorado River Municipal Water District, the entity that provides Big Spring with its raw water, plans to shut down water being sent to the city for about 19 hours this week, but area residents shouldn’t notice any change.
The purpose of the shutdown is to perform maintenance on water lines within the CRMWD, according to a press release issued by the city of Big Spring Friday. The water flowing to the city will be shut down at about 10 p.m. Tuesday night; and, if all goes well, should be restored by about 5 p.m. Wednesday.
“The CRMWD has notified the City of Big Spring that they will be doing maintenance on District lines,” said the release. “As a result, the City’s main supply of water will be shut down beginning at 10 p.m. on Tuesday, March 13, 2018, and will remain shut down until CRMWD restores water.”
