UPDATE: Hartselle Utilities restored electrical power to the Water Booster Stations at the foot of Hartselle Mountain this morning.
HU is now able to safely operate the pumping equipment and supply water to Hartselle’s water system and storage tanks.
Hartselle Utilities cancelled the requests for the conservation of water by HU customers.
Previous Story –
HARTSELLE, Ala. – Heavy rains passing through the Tennessee Valley caused the water to rise at Flint Creek and a water booster station in Hartselle has flooded.
Hartselle Utilities said due to “electrical safety reasons, we are currently unable to operate our pumping equipment to supply water to our water system and storage tanks.”
Residents are being asked to take measures to minimize their water usage until HU is able to safely operate the pumps.
At this time, HU does not have a timeline on when the pumps will be back in operation.
