PORTSMOUTH - City officials are asking residents to use less water following an increased demand and low amounts of precipitation.
A new report released Thursday morning said that city water users are using much more water now than this time last year.
The report asks customers to limit watering landscape during the daytime.
“Our demand for water is way up" said Portsmouth Water Engineer Al Pratt. "Our demands now are closer to what we usually see in July and August.”
The city said it would release additional reports over the next few months.
