St. Peters Issues Voluntary Water Conservation Order
Because of a dry spell, St. Peters is asking water customers to limit outside water uses including lawn sprinkling, car washing and other non-essential purposes.
The city of St. Peters is issuing a Voluntary Water Conservation Order effective on Friday, June 29, 2012, until further notice.
Because of the current dry spell, the city is asking water customers to limit outdoor water uses. The city advises against lawn sprinkling, car washing and other non-essential purposes.
The order is voluntary, but serves as a precautionary measure to lessen the mechanical strain placed on equipment at the water treatment plant, water booster station, and water distribution system.
“We appreciate our residents voluntarily limiting their water use during this time,” said Mayor Len Pagano in a press release. “With all of us working together to voluntarily use less water, it will help our entire region during this dry spell.”
