A notice has been issued by town officials in Jonesville asking customers to reduce their water usage due to low supply levels.
Mayor says that a spring the town water plant uses as a source is running at less than half its normal volume. He also noted that public works crews have installed one mile of new line at the source to the plant and are planning to explore using a second spring to help with the situation.
In the meantime, the mayor says the Lee County Public Service Authority and Woodway Water Authority have interconnected their lines to the Jonesville feeder system to add extra water to customers so that homes do not go dry.
The notice from the town asks residents to limit activities with their water, including delaying car washings, not filling up bathtubs, stop lawn sprinkling and only washing dishes when a full load exists.
Ewing said the conservation notice will remain in effect until further notice.
Anyone with questions on the situation can contact the Town Municipal Building at (276) 346-1151.
