CLARKSVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A water restriction order in north Clarksville has been lifted after repairs were made to a water line, city officials announced on Tuesday.

Clarksville Gas and Water asked customers in the Allen Griffey Water Pressure Zone to reduce consumption after a water main leak near Garner Hills Drive and Allen Griffey Road.

The utility company was able to make repairs to the water line. Because of consumption efforts, the water distribution system returned to normal operation and water storage tanks returned to normal levels.

"Water system personnel work around the clock to deliver safe and reliable drinking water to the citizens of Clarksville," Mayor Kim McMillan said in a press release. "We sincerely appreciate the North Clarksville customers' patience and cooperation during the water main repair work."

The Stage 3 drought restriction was in effect for the Allen Griffey Water Pressure Zone. The restrictions are to achieve a 25 percent reduction in total gallons per capita per day.

All water customers in the Allen Griffey Water Pressure Zone area must:

  • Prohibit operation of ornamental fountains or ponds to initial filling except where necessary to support aquatic life or where such fountains or ponds are equipped with a recirculation system.
  • Prohibit recreational water use including use of faucets, hoses or hydrants, which uses water in such a manner as to allow run-off or other wastes.
  • Prohibit washing of any motor vehicle, motorbike, boat, trailer, airplane or other vehicle.
  • Prohibit further reduction in frequency of draining and refilling swimming pools.
  • Prohibit hosing off paved areas, buildings, windows or other surfaces. Irrigation of landscape is absolutely prohibited.

The steps also encourage area restaurants to serve water by request only.

Water conservation measures can be found on the Clarksville Gas and Water website.
