Wiggins pumping system faces planned water restrictions

Water is expected to be restored to all affected areas on Wednesday morning, April 17.

RESIDENTS in areas serviced by the Wiggins pumping system must prepare themselves for an eight-hour water shutdown expected to continue until Wednesday morning.
