Our hearts are heavy as we continue to learn more about the senseless act of violence that took place at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. No teacher, parent, loved one, or student should ever have to endure such a horrific event. We simply cannot fathom the fear, devastation, and utter heartbreak that they are facing right now.

Turning on our faucets for safe drinking water and being able to flush our toilets are just a few of the things we tend to take for granted until days like today. Special thanks to the dedicated team of city employees who ensure we have these things each day. When a problem arises, they without hesitation jump into action to figure out what the issue is and get right to work to fix it. We appreciate Utility Foreman Glen Murray and his team for what they do behind the scenes for the City of Elwood! #teamwork #elwoodpride

The Elwood Water Department has determined that customers should boil their drinking water. This is recommended because of a water leak that has reduced pressure in some areas of the water system.

It is recommended that all cooking and drinking water be brought to a complete boil for five (5) minutes before using. Please continue to boil all cooking and drinking water until we notify you that it is no longer necessary.

We appreciate your cooperation during this time and will update you as necessary until the drinking water problem has been solved. If you have any questions concerning the drinking water please contact the Elwood Water department at (765) 552-9844.
