Posted at 6:56 AM, Jun 06, 2024

UPDATE, 7:20 p.m. | The City of Pleasant Hill said it identified a water main break on the south side of the water system.

The city said it took longer to find because it was located in a secluded brush covered location of the main.

A water advisory will remain in effect until further notice, but the city estimates it will last until Monday or Tuesday.

The city asks customers to continue conserving water and use it for essential needs only.

Water pick up will be at the Pleasant Hill Pool parking lot located at 1300 Myrtle Street.

It will be open daily through Saturday from 8 a.m to 8 p.m.

UPDATE, 10:15 a.m. | Cass County has issued a boil advisory until further notice. It affects all Pleasant Hill and Public Water District No. 1 customers.

Customers are encouraged to boil their water in case it becomes contaminated.

Anyone in Pleasant Hill who needs water delivered to them can submit a request on the city's online form.

ORIGINAL POST | The city of Pleasant Hill issued an immediate water restriction emergency at 3:30 a.m. on Thursday.

All customers are asked to limit water consumption to only what is essential until further notice.

Water District #1 also receives water from the City of Pleasant Hill water system. Those in the district are also asked to conserve water.

Customers are asked to avoid watering lawns and plants, filling pools, washing cars and washing clothes and dishes until the emergency is lifted.

The water is safe for consumption, however a boil order will be issued if complete pressure is lost within the system.

An issue in the system caused a "significant" loss of elevation in the water tower, which uses gravity to supply the system.

The levels in the tower are not currently able to meet overnight water demands.

Crews are working around the clock to identify the issue.
