Craig institutes bulk water sales changes

The city of Craig recently instituted a new bulk water sales system for those who buy large amounts of water for businesses or homes.

The new system is more consumer-friendly, city Finance Director Bruce Nelson said. Prepaid water accounts are kept on file at City Hall, which will prevent problems with lost money.

Bulk water stations – at 1775 Yampa Ave. or 1100 W. First St. – also offer options for Visa and Mastercard payment, through debit or credit cards, which was not possible before.

Those with water cards for the old system will need to purchase a new prepaid card for $5 if they wish to continue using a water card. They also may have their money refunded and use Visa or Mastercards for free.

Residents do not need a city account to purchase water.
