The electrical storm last night in Schreiber caused the water treatment plant to go offline. The Township of Schreiber is now relying on the elevated storage tank to supply the township with safe drinking water. While crews continue to work at bringing the water plant back online, the Township of Schreiber is asking residents to conserve water usage while we rely on the Township’s stored water supply.

Please be patient as the Township of Schreiber continues to work towards a resolution and they wish to thank all residents for their cooperation and understanding during this time.
