O’Connell’s Well Update
October 14, 2014
Please be advised that the electronic motherboard for O’Connell’s Well was purchased today from the factory on mainland and we hope it arrives tomorrow and replacement will possibly be late tomorrow or early Thursday.
Tomorrow, (Wednesday) residents west of O’Connell’s may find fluctuations in their water pressure and capacity, especially at peak demands, and that depends on the water height in tank. Throughout today, staff maintained the tank at 98 per cent and as long as that happens disruption in water will be minimum.
Staff have been at the well for most of today making certain that the booster pumps located in O’Connell’s well continue to keep the tank water pressured to meet the demands west of O’Connell’s.
Staff will be at the well early tomorrow and continue to monitor throughout the day.
Thank you to everyone for conserving water as that helps immensely to keep the tank at a maximum level.
The Town apologizes for this inconvenience and asks for your cooperation as staff work to get O’Connell’s back on the system.
