The old adage is true. “You don’t miss your water until the well runs dry.” Issues with the Rawlins water system have been creeping up on the city for years. Yesterday’s failure was a tipping point. Cali O’Hare has been following this story and provides a recap this morning.
Rawlins and Sinclair residents can get safe drinking water from a well source at the Carbon County Fairgrounds on Rodeo Street. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints dropped off several bottled water pallets there, driven over from Salt Lake City. These bottles are free for the taking, in bags of four, six, and 10 to ensure enough for everyone. The well water is available any time of day through any spigot in the big red horse barn, and it does not need to be boiled.
If you need water but are unable to pick it up, call the C4 at 307-328-7777.
