Water order lifted in Princeton

Water order lifted in Princeton

Have a nice long shower, sprinkle your lawn (if it’s your day) and do the laundry.

An emergency water conservation order affecting approximately 200 Princeton homes was lifted this morning.

The order, triggered by a failed motor at the municipal well near the Tulameen River, was imposed Tuesday.

It prohibited outdoor water use, and urged residents to conserve water indoors.

At no time was water quality affected.

Residents in the third bench, hospital, mine subdivision and westridge areas can resume normal water consumption.

According to a town press release the well has been repaired.
