Smithsburg water will be cut off
SMITHSBURG - Water to the town of Smithsburg will be cut off from midnight tonight to 5 a.m. Thursday while consultants look for leaks in the water transmission lines, town officials said.
"It will probably be a three-hour test, but we're saying 5 a.m. just to be safe," one of the consultants said.
In order to keep the elements in their hot water heaters from burning out, residents should turn them off before midnight tonight, town officials said. They can do that by cutting off power to them at the breaker box, officials said.
