The city is providing water via an emergency water tank, and residents are lining up to fill buckets and containers.

Jason Kotyk, who is expecting 16 people for Thanksgiving supper Monday night, said he is managing.

"I had enough to make coffee this morning," he said. "And I just bought some water at Safeway so, yeah, we'll be OK."

Kotyk said he is hoping, however, the water is back on by the time his guests arrive.
