The Town of Jonesborough’s Water Treatment Plant was without power for nearly 12 hours over the weekend, Saturday, June 18, due to storms that came through the area. Although Brightridge was able to restore power early Saturday afternoon, much of the Town’s storage capacity was depleted.
The Water Treatment plant has been running at full capacity since mid-afternoon Saturday, but Town officials are asking people to continue to do their part this week to conserve water until the Town’s storage capacity has been restored.
By conserving water, Town officials are asking customers not to use unnecessary water such as washing vehicles, watering lawns, etc. With assistance from its customers, we feel the storage capacity can be restored by this weekend and well before the upcoming July 4 holiday.
