    Don't waste this in Bedford.

    Residents in Bedford are being asked to curtail unnecessary water usage beginning Tuesday through Wednesday at 10 p.m.

    The restriction is so that repairs can be made to a large water main in the area of Cummings Drive and Murphy Drive.

    It will be necessary to build the levels in the elevated storage tanks on Tuesday prior to the start of these repairs. The repairs will be made starting Wednesday morning once the water towers are filled to full capacity.
     
    This voluntary restriction request that residents postpone the use of dishwashers, washing machines, and hand watering lawns until 8 p.m. Wednesday. Without the public's cooperation, water pressure will be extremely low in the northeast part of the city and could disrupt water service entirely, plus compromise emergency services.

    Please remember that the curfew is still in effect against watering lawns between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.

    For questions or concerns please contact the Public Works Department at 817-952-2200.
