Low water pressure could persist for three to four weeks, mostly affecting customers in Courtland, said Chad Meek, a trustee on the water association.

The Courtland tank was installed approximately 15 years ago and has never been refurbished, said Meek. The crew will sandblast the tank then repaint it.

A test of water lines showed the low water pressure is passing minimum standards of the state Department of Health, Meek said.

The Pope-Courtland Water Association serves approximately 900 customers.
