Water Emergency: City Of Caney

The City Of Caney deals with a major water issue.  The water treatment plant experienced a critical failure of the raw water pumps over Saturday night. Police Chief Ron Wade tells KGGF News that a water emergency has been declared until service and supplies of water can be restored. As of 1 :45 Sunday morning, 300,000 gallons of potable water were available with the system pressurized at 21.1 psi. Should that pressure drop below 20 psi, additional steps will have to be taken to conserve.  No outside watering is allowed.  Residents are advised not to wash cars or other items until the situation is corrected.  


If you have questions, call Caney City Hall at 620-879-2772.
