About 25 homes and the Gold Hill Hotel were without water Thursday in Storey County as crews fix two leaks in the Gold Hill area, Storey County Emergency Management Director Joe Curtis said.

The water has been turned off from Greiner’s Bend to Silver City. Curtis said crews began working on it about 2 p.m. Thursday, December 27, 2018. By 6 p.m. water had been restored.
