Water Use Reduction Request In Place (Fri., Aug. 18)

PRESS RELEASE

TO:                 MEDIA AND RESIDENTS

FROM:           CITY OF ST. CLAIRSVILLE

SUBJECT:     WATER USE REDUCTION REQUEST AND WATER-RELATED PROJECTS UPDATE

DATE:            AUGUST 18, 2023

RELEASE:  IMMEDIATE

 ST. CLAIRSVILLE, OH – The City of St. Clairsville is asking that its water customers voluntarily reduce water consumption for the next two weeks. Specifically, the following steps would help to reduce consumption:

  • only wash full loads when doing laundry or running the dishwasher;
  • shorten showers;
  • postpone car washing, or watering lawns and landscaping; and
  • do not leave tap water running.  Use only as needed.

The week of August 21, a contractor will be cleaning each of the two main water tanks situated behind the Municipal Building.  Since the water will be drained from each tank in turn, be aware that this process will result in water running along Newell Avenue in the direction of the stormwater sewer system.

Three other water line related projects are spread across the City:  the contractor on the $8 million Water Distribution System Improvements Project (Phase 1 and 2A) is making progress on needed water line and tap replacements; the Reservoir Road/I-70 Water Line Project is nearing completion; and the West End Water Distribution System Improvements Project is about to get underway.  All of these major water infrastructure projects are long overdue.  Once the City implements the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency’s mandate to connect to the Belmont County water system, these projects will ease the burden on all municipal water customers.

The City thanks residents in advance for their patience and efforts to conserve water which will help avoid additional requests.
