Update to Water Issues – 5/13/2021

City of Lancaster water customers are being asked to voluntarily curtail water usage beginning at 10 p.m. on Friday, May 14, while the Bureau of Water repairs a leak in East Hempfield Township. During this repair, only one water plant will be operating, as the other plant and storage reservoir will be temporarily out of service. Repairs are expected to take about 8 hours overnight to perform, and will continue until approximately 6 a.m. on Saturday, May 15.

Customers will not be without water at this time, but water pressure will be lower than normal, especially on the west side of the system which includes areas in Manor, East Hempfield, Lancaster and Pequea Townships, and Millersville Borough. Please schedule activities like showering, dishwashing and laundry before 10 p.m. on Friday or after 6 a.m. on Saturday.

Customer questions should be directed to the Water Lab at (717) 291-4818, Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. After-hours questions should be directed to (717) 291-4816 or (717) 684-5056.
