Water service is out for most Highland County Water Co. customers


Water service was shut off to most Highland County Water Company customers on Saturday night.

Highland County EMA says a regional water company is running out of water because treatment plan is out of power and three out of five towers are dry.

They have shut down the water to a trickle and brought in a large portable generator, which is being wired into the plant.

Power was restored around 10 p.m. on Saturday night. The treatment plant will be restarted. They hope to have normal water pressure by Sunday morning. The whole system is also under a boil order.
