Clear Spring makes water conservation mandatory

October 19, 2005|by MARLO BARNHART

CLEAR SPRING - Mandatory water conservation measures were enacted Tuesday in Clear Spring due to a system leakage that has reduced the available water supply for customers.

"Town and county personnel are out looking for the leak or leaks," Town Clerk Juanita Grimm said Tuesday afternoon.

Water customers are prohibited from using water for anything other than what is necessary to maintain sanitary conditions and for cooking. These restrictions are designed to prevent further loss of the town's water supply.

Restricted uses include washing vehicles; hosing siding, driveways and walks; watering gardens, lawns or shrubs; and filling pools.

Grimm said residents can help in the effort by notifying town officials if they see an area of standing water that might indicate the location of a leak. Messages left at 301-842-2252 will be recorded and checked regularly.

Other questions may be directed to the Washington County Department of Water Quality at 240-313-2600.

Once the water supply returns to normal operations, the mandatory water conservation notice will be lifted and all customers will be notified.
