Tonto Creek Shores (Gisela) water 'undermined'

Brooke Utilities issues the following statement Friday:

Payson Water Co., Tonto Creek Shores (Gisela)

EMERGENCY CONDITIONS: Please be advised that weather conditions have caused Tonto Creek to flood TCS’s primary water production and storage site. At least 50,000 gallons of stored water has been undermined and rendered unusable. The remaining 20,000 gallons of storage remain in service, as does the water supply which has not been affected or contaminated by these circumstances. The primary production well continues in service.

Payson Water Co.’s Operation Staff is on-site providing service at the present time. However, some degree of temporary or permanent reconstruction of the site may be necessary. We are not yet sure as to the condition of the water distribution system. Water service is now interrupted to an unknown number of customers. These conditions will remain in effect until further notice.

Please conserve water whenever possible until these emergency conditions can be resolved.

We will further advise as conditions change.
