The City of Lewisburg is asking its residents to conserve water to help re-establish normal tank levels and water pressure throughout the water system.
The city said in a statement:
“We have determined that water conservation is needed at this time in order to protect the integrity of our supply and distribution system. Since the last cold snap began, we have experienced a noticeable reduction in the water available from our source and have discovered numerous water leaks that have compromised our ability to restore water levels in our water tanks.”
They have also seen a higher use of water in the last couple of weeks. In order to have normal water pressure there must be certain level of water in the tank.
The city is asking residents to only use what is necessary until the water levels rise.
