That’s nacho valve


Don’t do this at home.

That applies to your home water valve – which as it turns out is property of the city of Purcell and not you, the home owner.

That’s the word from Purcell Water Department Superintendent Michael Minor.

“We’ve had a growing number of incidents where people are shutting off their water and breaking the valves,” Minor told me this week.

“Since the valves are property of the city if they are broken we are forced to bill the customer for the damage which includes parts and labor,” he said.

So leave those water cutoff keys in the garage and call the city if you need your water turned off.
