Mountaintop Regional Water Authority asks for voluntary water restrictions

Mountaintop Regional Water Authority customers are being asked to voluntarily restrict water usage due to dry weather conditions and low water levels. According to an announcement sent Tuesday, non-essential water usage includes watering lawns, washing sidewalks, patios or cars, operating water fountains, filling and topping off swimming pools and using outdoor water entertainment for children.

Lack of voluntary cooperation with this request may result in mandatory water restrictions. Snow Shoe, Clarence, Moshannon and Pine Glen are included in the Mountaintop Regional Water Authority.
