Lithia Fountains Temporarily Off for Repairs
Posted: Wednesday, August 02, 2023

The Lithia fountains will be turned off for two weeks starting August 2, 2023, for necessary repairs and replacement of equipment. The water will be turned back on once repairs are completed.

Background: The water is shutoff because off the Taxiway Rehabilitation project at the Ashland Airport. Lithia water is pumped from the Ashland Gun Club property to town and a portion of it runs across the airport where Knife River is currently working. The line in their excavation zone needed repair and the appropriate plastic pipe for use with Lithia Water required a special order, thus keeping it off for another one to two weeks. Typically, preventative maintenance at the fountains is done during the offseason, but there are many reasons why the water could be off during peak season, one of which is emergency repair on the thousands of feet of line that deliver the water from the gun club to the Plaza.
