Voluntary Request Related To MLGW Davis Water Treatment Plant Maintenance
Memphis Light, Gas and Water Division is voluntarily requesting commercial, industrial and residential customers, primarily in southwest Memphis, to conserve water during the peaks hours of 5 to 9 a.m. and 6 to 10 p.m. as maintenance work continues at its Davis Water Treatment Plant this week.
MLGW is asking customers within the affected area — Stateline Rd to the south, Airways/East Parkway to the east, North Parkway to the north, and the Mississippi River to the west — to voluntarily limit water consumption to help keep system pressures stable during peak water usage times.
For instance, residential customers can conserve by not washing vehicles or watering lawns and delaying the filling of pools during the peak hours of 5 to 9 a.m. and 6 to 10 p.m.
The Davis Water Treatment Plant has been temporarily shutdown since May 2.
