League uses more water than a store

May 24, 2007|by ANDREW SCHOTZ

The amount of water Conococheague Little League is said to have used in five months could run a convenience or grocery store, a county official said Wednesday.

The league used 775,800 gallons at three sites from March 2006 to March 2007, Williamsport Clerk/Treasurer James R. Castle said.

However, the league only uses water for the five months when games are played, league President Walter Williams said.

At The Herald-Mail's request, Washington County Administrator Gregory Murray, the county's former water and sewer director, put 775,000 gallons in more familiar terms.

The monthly average of 155,000 gallons is enough for about 40 average homes in Washington County, he said.

Assuming that water is used 25 days a month, the daily usage of about 6,000 gallons per day would be more than a large Sheetz store (about 4,000 gallons) or a large grocery store (about 5,000 gallons), he said.
