Water warningMembers of the Newark community are urged to reduce water usage. Because of below- average rainfall during the past several months and the return of students to the area, additional demands will be made on limited supplies, and voluntary reduction in wate r use is recommended.
Water customers are asked to minimize outside water use, take shorter showers, repair water leaks and install water-saving devices that also will help with long-term conservation efforts.
