Water restrictions have been lifted in Newport
Newport is continuing to meet its current water demand; and the fish processing plants have been authorized to operate at full production.
The two mobile water production units are operational. Staff will work with the mobile units this week to obtain necessary performance data. Work on the main plant is scheduled to begin next week, and its reduced water production will be supplemented by these two mobile water plants.
Please do not go to the Water Treatment Plant. Staff, engineers, and others are working to ensure the city can continue to meet its water demands. There is no one available to help with tours at this time.
Staff will send updates as news is available.
