Recommended restrictions on water usage in Springfield lifted

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, TN (WSMV) -

Officials in Springfield say the recommended restrictions on water usage have been lifted.

The Springfield water treatment plant is now producing water at a normal volume.

Water customers are asked to try to conserve water over the weekend to help the water system return to normal operation.

On Thursday, city officials urged people in Springfield and Greenbrier to conserve because the treatment plant had problems cleaning the drinking water.

Officials say no dirty water ever left the city's treatment plant, but supplies got low. They said something got into the water coming from the Red River and they had a hard time getting it out.

This issue is not related to a water problem earlier in the week elsewhere in Robertson County. In that case, wastewater from a storage lagoon seeped into Millers Creek. That problem was 28 miles away, and the two incidents are not related.
