The City of Sedan gets limited relief from the water emergency.
The lake intake pumps at the Quivira Lake in Sedan have been shortened which has given the city of Sedan some slight relief in their current water emergency. The situation remains critical as the intake structure has only another 36 inches before a catastrophic failure occurs. Public Wholesale Water Supply District #20 and Chautauqua County Emergency Management are working toward a backup emergency system should that happen, but without substantial amount of rainfall to replenish our water source, Sedan will remain in a Stage 3 Water Emergency. Residents should continue take extreme water conservation measures and follow the recommendations set forth in the Stage 3. For daily updates and water conservation tips, visit the City of Sedan or the PWWSD #20 Facebook pages.
