Residents in northern Chatham County are being asked temporarily to turn off the tap when bathing, brushing teeth and washing dishes, and to avoid washing cars and watering lawns.

Mechanical problems at Chatham County's water treatment plant are limiting how much water is available to customers east of the Haw River and north of U.S. 64, including residents of Governors Club, The Preserve, Bynum and Fearrington Village.

Chatham County has had to buy water from Durham County to keep up with demand.

The Chatham County press release does not say how long the mechanical problems have been going on, how severe the water shortage is or how long residents should conserve water.

For more information, call the Chatham County Water Department at 542-8270.
