APRIL 25, 2006 -- New Hanover County officials are asking water customers to be conservative with their faucets.
The county is required to repair a main sewer line, the Northeast Interceptor, before any new developments can be added.
Officials say it will be easier to repair if there is less water flowing through the line. They say conserving water at home will reduce the amount of flow through sewer lines.
Here are some suggestions for conserving water at home.
