Cold Spring Asks for Water Reduction

Cold Spring is asking residents to voluntarily reduce their water use to help replenish the reservoirs.

Water and Sewer Supervisor Matt Kroog told the Village Board on Sept. 17 that a lack of rainfall in the past month has decreased reservoir levels by 5.75 percent. The reservoirs were at 79.75 percent capacity in August.

The board asked that anyone in the water district restrict use, at least before 7 a.m. and after 7 p.m. Kroog said that because of the low levels, drinking water in the village may have a slight “earthy taste” but is safe to drink.
