Extreme temperatures stressing Manchester water supply; residents encouraged to reduce use

Residents who are customers of Manchester Water Department are being encouraged to reduce water use due a stress on the system.

Manchester officials announced Saturday morning that the extreme low temperatures over the last several days is “causing significant water loss and is stressing our water supply system.”

“We are requesting that everyone please take measures to reduce water use. The only faucets that you should need to drip are for plumbing that is on an exterior wall,” Manchester City Government said in a release Saturday morning.

“Open the cabinet doors in bathrooms and kitchens to allow heat from you home to keep the pipes warm. Also if you drip, drip the water slowly, not a constant stream, and turn off when the temperature warms. If you know of any suspected water leaks, call Manchester Water Department at 728-1273 or 273-7017 to report. Please share this notice.”
