Why your water pressure was low during the day Sunday. The four inch main on the east side of Russell (NE 63) cracked and created an impressive artesian effect until Ryan, John and Rick fixed the cracked pipe. So thank these guys who gave up their Sunday afternoon so you could flush your toilets.
No one ran into the fire truck or the guys working on the cracked main.
The bottom of the hole is very wet and deep.
Chief Rick directs traffic - or slows them down a bit.
We charge for water service so we can pay for time and equipment to fix problems. So please pay your bills on time.

We have gained a bit toward normal moisture levels - a little over 3.6% overall, with no severe drought areas in the state. The farmers and ranchers in the center and panhandle regions still need moisture - so rather than you ministers advocating for political candidates from the pulpit, how about advocating for more rain or snow?

Feb 12th, 1999 - President Clinton was acquitted by the Senate on two impeachment articles. The charges were perjury and obstruction of justice.

How can the rule of law for every American be applied equally if we have two standards of justice in America--one for the powerful and the other for the rest of us?" - Senator Chuck Hagel
