Message from Metro Water Services; May 4, 2010:
“There are rumors that Metro Water Services plans to cut off water service to its customers. This is not true.
“In response to the rumors, we are concerned that citizens are filling bathtubs, buckets and other containers. This reaction is placing a significant strain on our water supply. We ask all citizens and businesses to stop using water for uses other than drinking, cooking, hand washing, and other critical uses.
“Lawn watering, watering of plants, car washing, cleaning sidewalks and parking lots, and similar uses are not essential and need to stop until the water shortages are resolved.
