None of the water has left the plant. As a precautionary measure, we are asking customers to boil water before using for consumption. We expect this notice to be in effect for 48 hours beginning at 12:45 a.m. March 28th, 2021 and expire at 12:45 a.m. March 30th, 2021. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience while we work to resolve this problem.’ School Officials have been in touch with Woodbury Water Department Personnel regarding this issue. Five of our seven schools are on the Woodbury Water System, and the safety of our students is our top priority. On a related note due to the flooding situation in Cannon County, several County and State roads have received damage, washed out, and are debris littered. Cannon County Bus Drivers have been instructed to examine their routes for any possible hazards. If repairs are made at the Water Treatment Plant and roads have been cleared, Schools may resume normal operation on-time on Tuesday, March 30th, 2021.”
