HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -
Huntsville Utilities lifted parts of the water conservation request for parts of east Huntsville Saturday afternoon.
Huntsville Utilities crews were able to complete repairs to a water pump this morning and has lifted its water conservation request for customers that live in neighborhoods east of the Monte Sano/Green Mountain area.
A pump that supplied up to four-million gallons of water a day to the eastern part of the city failed Thursday night and the system was struggling to meet water demands in that area.
"We want to express our appreciation to customers who helped with the water conservation efforts," stated utility spokesman Bill Yell. "We still encourage customers to use water wisely during this very dry weather event" Yell added.
Utility officials stressed that while the system is now in good shape, it is being run at near record levels and any system failure such as a major main break or pump failure could result in another conservation request.
Huntsville Utilities pumped 70.5 million gallons water on Friday. The all-time single day record for water use was set in 2007 at 76 million gallons. The system has the capability to pump over 90 million gallons a day from two treatment plants on the Tennessee River and two wells within the city.
