CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Clarksville Gas & Water has lifted temporary voluntary water restrictions for Clarksville effective immediately. Citizens may return to normal water usage.
Early today, Gas & Water managers performed a water system evaluation and results showed adequate water levels to meet Clarksville’s normal daily water demands and to lift all water restrictions.
Gas & Water placed mandatory water restrictions for Clarksville on Monday, Jan. 16, in response to a 30-inch water transmission line break. The line break repair was complete by mid-afternoon on Tuesday, Jan. 17, allowing the water system levels to recover.
“I express my gratitude to our Gas & Water employees, in the field and office, who worked together for the successful repair of the water line,” said Gas & Water General Manager Mark Riggins. “No water outages were reported as a result of the repair work and I contribute this to citizens for following the water restrictions. I’m grateful for their efforts to help us return to adequate water supply levels,” Riggins said. “I also extend my appreciation to officials at the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) for their support and assistance throughout the water line repair work and disinfection process.”
It is not only important to limit water use during water emergencies, but water conservation measures are a smart idea any time of year. Water conservation measures are available on the Clarksville Gas & Water website, www.clarksvillegw.com or the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) website, www.epa.gov/watersense.
