Nye County Public Works has announced that in order to support community efforts to mitigate the impact of COVID-19, NCPWU is suspending water service shutoffs, effective immediately, for delinquent payments in the Town of Manhattan and the Town of Gabbs service areas.
Additionally, Gabbs Town Utilities and County Public Works Utilities will also begin reconnecting service to customers currently not receiving water service due to a lack of payment on delinquent accounts in both service areas. This policy will remain in effect until at least April 16th and will be re-evaluated at that time. The suspension of shutoffs is only temporary.
