Orofino water users: Remember to conserve!
Those residents who use the City of Orofino water system are reminded to conserve water today and tomorrow (Monday and Tuesday).
City staff will be conducting required maintenance to the city water treatment plant, and during this period, water production will be limited to half its daily output, thereby limiting the amount of water being pumped into storage reservoirs.
All city reservoirs were full at the time of maintenance and are expected to easily meet the needs of residents and businesses. Nonetheless, the mayor and city council ask that users of the city water system conserve as much water as possible during these two days. In the event of an emergency, large quantities of water may be needed.
Questions can be directed to the city at (208)
