Water Company Issues Water Shortage Advisory

Officials in another Kentucky county are asking everyone to cut back on using water.

Officials in Clay County have declared a local water shortage advisory because of abnormally dry weather conditions. They are asking residents to begin voluntarily using less water.

Here are some tips for water conservation:

* Repair dripping faucets and leaky toilets. This can save 2,000 gallons of water per year and 200 gallons of water per day.

* Keep outside water usage to a minimum. Only water gardens and plants during early morning or late evening. Don't water lawns or wash vehicles. Use a broom rather than a hose to clean the driveway.

* If you have a swimming pool, get a cover. You'll cut the loss of water by evaporation by 90 percent.

If you have any questions on the advisory, you can call the water company at 606-598-6043.
