UPDATE: Water has been restored to normal.

A release from the City of Lincoln City said crews performed maintenance on the high school’s water meter, causing sediment to be stirred up in a bypass line used to divert the water so repairs could be made. The meter has been repaired and water has been routed back to the main line.

According to the City of Lincoln City, the repair did not affect Taft Elementary.
