DEAR FARMERS WATER CUSTOMERS:

Based on information from our federal and local health authorities, and to protect our customers and employees from the corona virus, we are closing Farmers Water to walk-in traffic effective 7 am today for at least two weeks. We will update you on our website as to when we re-open.

We will continue to take phone calls, should you have any questions, or concerns about water service.  In lieu of payment at our offices, we are accepting payments via mail and internet while our walk-in services are closed. Please call during office hours 520-879-7474 (after hours call 520-591-3178) or visit us online at www.farmerswaterco.com.

Our water department personnel are committed to continuing to provide customers with high quality water service during this unprecedented time. 

We believe we must all do our part to prevent the spread of this highly contagious virus. While our Government tells us that 98% of those infected with the virus will recover, we want to protect seniors and those with pre-existing conditions that make them vulnerable to life threatening consequences.
