The City of Springfield is recommending that its residents and customers conserve water until June 29, 2022.
Due to the near drought conditions in the area, the City of Springfield is encouraging residents to avoid discretionary uses of water by refraining from the following:
Washing of vehicles;
Watering of lawns including sprinklers, and irrigation systems;
Filling of swimming pools;
Any other unnecessary/extra water usage in your home/businesses.
With the current weather conditions, the capacity of the city's water system has been strained which can compromise water pressure and the ability to provide adequate fire protection.
"We are only encouraging residents and customers to voluntarily conserve water. We hope conditions will change soon, alleviating the need for water conservation," city officials said in an earlier statement.
Report any and all water leaks as quickly as possible by calling (615) 382-1600.
"Thank you for your understanding and cooperation."
