Water company urges wise water use

HERSHEY, Pa. (WHTM) – Pennsylvania American Water is urging customers in Cumberland County to voluntarily reduce their water use.

Christopher Abruzzo, the water company’s director of water quality and environmental compliance, said sources are at adequate levels, but customers should use water wisely now so there aren’t more severe conditions later on.

The state Department of Environmental Protection on Tuesday added Cumberland and three other Pennsylvania counties to its drought watch declaration.

A drought watch declaration calls for a voluntary five-percent reduction in non-essential water use.

DEP last month declared a drought watch for 34 counties including Dauphin, Juniata, Lebanon, Mifflin, and Perry.
