Waynesboro eyes water rationing By RICHARD F. BELISLE / Staff Writer, Waynesboro WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Customers of the Waynesboro public water system may face water rationing that would cut use by 25 percent, the director of borough utilities said Wednesday. S. Leiter Pryor said the water level in the reservoir that supplies the system has been dropping at the rate of 1 inch per day. As of Wednesday, the level was 14 feet, 5 inches below the spillway, the lowest it's been since the 150-million-gallon reservoir was built in 1958, Pryor said.

waynesboro@herald-mail.com QUINCY, Pa. - An 800-foot test well drilled in Quincy Township by the Borough of Waynesboro, Pa.'s public water system caused about 20 Quincy residents to complain that the well might cause their own wells to run dry. The residents aired their concerns Tuesday night before the Quincy Township Supervisors. The company drilling the well off Blue Rock Road for the Waynesboro Borough Authority struck water at 287 feet. At that point it was producing about 450 gallons per minute, but it was too cloudy for public use. The drillers went down to about 800 feet but found no difference in the amount or purity, said S. Leiter Pryor, head of Waynesboro's water department.

When Linda Pryor learned she had breast cancer, her first thought about treatment was simply to have the breast removed so she wouldn't have to deal with the constant worry that some cancer remained. Not only did the Lemasters, Pa., resident not have to have her breast removed, but she also didn't go through traditional, external radiation therapy. Instead, this past summer, Pryor became one of about 30 women to receive a new, internal radiation therapy known as MammoSite at the John R. Marsh Cancer Center at Robinwood Medical Center, east of Hagerstown.
