Residents in the Snowshoe area received 1,600 cases of free bottled water on Friday as a temporary relief from their water crisis.
Residents started showing up at the town’s EMS building early in the morning. For weeks, their water has looked, smelled and tasted abnormal.
"Yes, everybody is having the same problem," said Sharon Nilson, the EMS chief and a Snowshoe resident. "For some people, it’s dirt in their lines; for some people, I guess it’s the milky thing. We have some people live up on Fountain Road that have no water pressure whatsoever.”
