AVON LAKE, Ohio – Nearly 200,000 water customers in Avon, Avon Lake, Medina were asked Sunday to take part in a voluntary water cut-back because of intake issues at the Avon Lake Water Regional Water Plant.
The staff at Parkers Grille and Tavern took small steps to cut back on water usage at the restaurant. Dish racks were filled before put through cleaning machines and frozen foods thawed in the cooler instead of under running water.
“When you deal with water here in the restaurant you always have your best practices on, you know running dishes through the tank and in this kind of situation we just tighten it up a little more,” said restaurant owner James Mowbray.
For the second year in a row, Avon Lake Regional Water asked customers to cut back on usage. Plant officials say slush in Lake Erie limited water intake at the plant. Chief Utilities Executive Todd Danielson says as of Sunday, the plant was bringing in about half of its normal water amount.
