DAYTON, Nev. (KOLO) - The Lyon County Utilities Department is investigating a note that threatened a water well.

The note was found on Tuesday, December 3, 2019, threatening a well at the Dayton water service area.

Lyon County requested assistance from the state and the Nevada National Guard Civil Support Team confirmed that the well site had not been tampered with.

The well site had actually been shut down earlier in the year, so there is no threat of contamination to the water system.

Lyon County authorities say the matter is still under investigation.
