Bullhead City Utilities has been working to reroute water to the area from different sections of the water system while the motor is repaired. Water service to the area is being restored momentarily. Customers can expect lower than normal water pressure and discolored water due to sediments stirred up by the change in flow direction. Customers should remain confident the water is still safe. Bullhead City Utilities suggests customers may flush discolored water through an outside hose bib to clear their lines.
