WATER OUTAGE NOTICE – At this time, Gulf Shores Utilities has restored water service throughout the entire system. Boil notices remain in the areas listed above. We do not anticipate shutting down any water service going forward unless there is an emergency situation that would require us to do so. If you are experiencing water outage, please call our office at 251-968-6323 to report your outage. We have a 24-hour answering service so you can contact us at any time.
SANITARY SEWER NOTICE – Gulf Shores Utilities has issued a notice that all customers may experience interruption in sewer service until further notice. Crews are working to restore service in areas where gravity sewer is available. Areas that have low pressure sewer (grinder pumps) will be assessed after power is restored in those areas. Gulf Shores Utilities is asking everyone to conserve water as much as possible. Due to power outages, the lift stations that are used to convey sewage to wastewater treatment plants are in limited use at this time. Overuse of toilet flushing or water going down drains may cause grinder pumps to overflow or cause a backup into your home. Please be aware and try and limit water usage as much as possible.
SANITARY SEWER NOTICE – Sanitary sewer service has been restored in the following areas:
- Colonial Grand Traditions
- Gulf Pines Area
- Meyer Park Area
- East and West side of town in areas south of the bridge and north of Fort Morgan Rd – with the exception of the end of Wedgewood and East Bear Creek
We will continue to update this listing as service is restored.
