​Potable ​water will be ​unavailable​ until further notice. ​Further updates will advise when water service is reestablished.

Recurring district water leaks and stoppages have occurred in recent years due to aging infrastructure.

In the next few months, the leak will be identified and repaired. Long-term, the park has plans to replace the water system in the next two years.
