Systems ask for voluntary water use reductions

Comment   Email   Print

The water systems of Rutherford County are asking customers to use water wisely and conservatively in light of the severe heat, lack of rain and dry conditions now present throughout the Middle Tennessee area.

The areas affected comprise the Consolidated Utility District, Murfreesboro Water and Sewer Department, Smyrna Utilities and La Vergne Public Works.

The current request is that customers voluntarily reduce their use of water for non-essential purposes by 10 percent through actions such as refraining from washing vehicles and watering landscaping, taking short showers, and checking for leaks in toilets and other plumbing.  

Efficient usage of water by all through immediate voluntary reductions may make further measures unnecessary.

Additional information, and suggestions about what to reduce and how to do so, will be made available at each system’s website.  

Public service announcements about the importance of water conservation measures are also being prepared.

One of the water conservation ordinances in some places ie (California)is a "WOR" water on request for eateries. This is a resource savings for a community as well as a monetary savings for the eatery. Since the supplier of water is in the business of selling that product emergency conservation ordinances are not always a priority until "the well starts to run dry".
