Two communities now under water restrictions

But Pine at Stage 1 for Memorial Day weekend

Two communities whose water is provided by Brooke Utilities are under conservation restrictions.

Mesa del Caballo is and has been under Stage 3 restrictions and it may soon be necessary to begin hauling water according to Brooke.  The company will buy water from the Town of Payson and truck it to Mesa del from a hydrant at The Home Depot. 

The Forest Service is still considering whether to allow a temporary aboveground pipeline to transfer water to Mesa del. 

The other community to experience restrictions this holiday weekend is Flowing Springs, which was placed under Stage 2 restrictions Monday, May 31.

Meanwhile, Pine, for many years the community in the Rim Country with the most acute water shortage issues, is at Stage 1 this weekend.  The Pine and Strawberry water systems were recently acquired from Brooke by the Pine Strawberry Water Improvement District (PSWID).
