Water customers east of Rock Road and Andover urged to forego irrigation until power is restored.
City of Wichita officials are urging water customers east of Rock Road in Wichita and all of Andover to not water their lawns until Saturday due to a loss of electrical power at a water pump station on Webb Road.
The power outage has reduced water pressure in areas east of Rock Road. Westar is working to restore the power to the pump station.
The voluntary watering restriction is not requested of customers west of Rock Road, because they are not affected by the power outage.
Public Works & Utilities officials will provide an update on the power outage and voluntary water restrictions during the daily 10 a.m. Public Safety Briefing at City Hall, 455 N. Main.
