A mechanical failure at the City of Phillipsburg water treatment plant, has caused the softening system to be offline. Customers may notice a change in how this affects dishwashers, washing machines, and in home water softening. Repairs will be made as soon as possible, meanwhile the water is still safe to drink and use. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and ask for your patience. If you have any questions please contact Tim Driggs, Public Works Supervisor, at 785-543-5234.
