NASHVILLE CONTINUES TO CONSERVE WATER AS K.R. HARRINGTON IS REPAIRED
NASHVILLE CONTINUES TO CONSERVE WATER AS K.R. HARRINGTON IS REPAIRED K.R. Harrington Water Treatment Plant, one of Nashville's two water treatment facilities, was completely submerged during the flood, but is expected to be back in operation by the end of May. In the mean time, Metro Water Services' more than 600,000 customers are asked to continue water conservation efforts. Citizens have ceased car washing, irrigation and other forms of unnecessary water usage. More information about how you can conserve water can be found online. Once service is able to be restored, appropriate sampling, in coordination with the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) will be required to ensure that the water provided by K.R. Harrington is safe and meets all state and federal requirements. FEMA has estimated the total cost of repairing all Metro Water facilities at approximately $200 million.
