Due to the snow storm, power continues to be out Saturday morning at many water pumping stations. This may result in loss of water service for many Kingsport customers as water storage towers deplete the existing supply. Please, conserve water as much as possible.

Areas that loss of service is anticipated are Colonial Heights, Indian Springs, Fall Branch and Lynn Garden. Once service is restored, open all the faucets to bleed any air trapped in the lines and run the water until clear.

For those without power or water, there are free emergency shelters available‚ at Kingsport Civic Auditorium and Carter’s Valley Ruritan. Also, MeadowView Marriott and other Kingsport hotels are offering special room rates for those wishing to check into a hotel.
