The mandatory conservation of water in Wentzville will be lifted at 9 p.m. on Wednesday night.
Monday night, Wentzville’s mayor told News 4 a mandatory conserve water order applied to all customers served by the City of Wentzville and Public Water Service District #2. Residents and businesses of Wentzville are not to water lawns, do laundry, wash cars or use water for non-essential purposes.
Residents who use Public Water Service District #2 in southern O’Fallon, Lake St. Louis, New Melle and Defiance are under a voluntary conservation.
The order went into effect because crews are working to repair a 36-inch water main.
The conservation order is expected to continue until Thursday.
