Susanville residents asked to conserve water

“All Susanville residents are asked to conserve water and limit usage until further notice,” a Thursday, July 23 statement from Susanville Public Works read.

“Outdoor irrigation should be suspended, and water conservation measures should be implemented by all residents.

“Due to the power outage and high-water usage for the surrounding fires the City’s water supply could become significantly lowered. The power outage prevents the well pumps from supplying our local water tanks with much of its regular water supply.
An update will be posted as soon as the situation changes. Our community’s cooperation during this time is greatly appreciated.”
