Water conservation requested Thursday

The City of Mount Vernon has asked citizens to conserve water all day on Thursday, July 23.

Planned maintenance will be conducted on the pumps at the Water Treatment Plant. No water will be produced on that day. “The work should take most of the day, and the water will be restored as soon as possible,” City Administrator Tina Rose said. The Splashpad at Little Creek Park will be turned off that day. Citizens are asked to refrain from running their sprinklers and to remember to turn off their automatic systems.
