The request for water conservation is over, after Evansville Utility customers responded to encouragement to use less during the past few days. A news release from the utility says reservoir levels at the treatment plant have returned to normal, but water main breaks are likely to continue through the winter. The utility responded to a record number of breaks, 99 already this year and 79 since the conservation notice last Thursday. As of Monday morning there are 41 active breaks, and a number of boil advisories are in place.
