UPDATE: City of Lander extends request for no unnecessary watering until further notice

(Lander, Wyo.) – The City of Lander is extending its request water customers for no unnecessary outdoor watering until further notice. Deputy Clerk Tami Hitshew said the city’s crews were unable to get the clogged valve replaced at the Water Treatment Plant as quickly as expected.

On Tuesday, Public Works Director Mickey Simmons expected the repair to take two days to complete. However, Hitshew said the crews now have a goal to have it done by the weekend.

By limiting outdoor watering for the next couple days, the plant will process less water and thereby aiding city crews in the repairs.
