Water from Ellis pool to be distributed


ELLIS -- With water restrictions for Ellis residents, the Ellis Public Works Department for the first time will have a water distribution event starting at 8 a.m. Thursday at Ellis Municipal Pool.

Residents and businesses will be allowed to take water -- which does contain pool chemicals and other debris from the pool season -- from the pool. Approximately 100,000 gallons of water will be allowed to be distributed until the required water retention level is reached.
