March 3 news

WORTHINGTON – The Worthington Water and Light Commission discussed the possibility of a non-essential water ban Monday, but as of yet, nothing has been put in place. This time around, there has been talk of implementing a ban in stages, according to Worthington Public Utilities Manager Scott Hain, because the wells are two feet, two inches below average, but not at critical stages.

Discussed were phases in water restrictions, such as odd/even lawn irrigation, attended watering, limited hours of watering, or a total ban on non-essential use. No action was taken on the matter.
