Water Pressure Restored on Elko Water System

RDEK operators restored the Elko community water system to normal operating pressures this afternoon after yesterday’s power outage and subsequent equipment failure.  More repair work is needed to restore the system to full functionality, and that work will be undertaken throughout the coming week.  As part of these repairs, another interruption in water service is expected later next week for Elko, and the community will be advised in advance once a firm schedule is determined.   The RDEK will continue monitoring the system and has operators on stand-by should another failure occur  in the mean time.
