In late June 2018 we had to withdraw the hot tub from service due to drought conditions and low volume water recovery in our well. We will monitor this situation and return the hot tub to service when well recovery volumes improve. Our water system infrastructure includes an underground 1,000 gallon storage tank that serves this property.
