The Hot Springs Utilities water system is at critically low levels, according to Utilities Director Monty Ledbetter. He is asking residents who might run their faucets tonight to do so at no more than slow drip, and for everyone to be in conservation mode.
“Water is critical for firefighting needs, and conservation will ensure water remains available for everybody in the system. Please do everything you can to save water during this time – skip a shower, skip a bath, conserve as much as you can,” said Ledbetter.
Some areas of the city have already begun to experience loss of water pressure due to the shortage.
