URGENT Water Emergency Conservation
Recomendations as Suggested by
While the mass media is focusing on the need to boil water for at least 3 minutes before use due to possible contamination, the general public may not be fully aware of the importance of conservation in this crisis.
While the boil water order is important, if we all do not DRASTICALLY cut water consumption we may have NO water to boil! Share this with everone you know – friends, neighbors, family.
Simply put, Elizabethtown Water Company can not pump as much water into the system as we are drawing from it.
Immediately Ration ALL Use Of Water
NO Washing Machines
NO Outdoor Use of ANY KIND
LIMITED Toilet Flushing
TURN OFF Automatic Appliances
REPAIR All Leaks
BOIL All Water Intended for Consumption
