AVON LAKE, Ohio — A report revealed ice formed in the water intake valve in the Avon Lake Municipal Utilities’ water treatment plant, decreasing the amount of water local residents receive, according to a news release from Uncover Michigan.
The ice has prompted divers to divert the flow of water to help preserve the water, stated the release.
The release continued that Avon Lake’s water officials, as of a result of the ice, asked residents to cut down on their water usage.
Avon Lake Mayor Gregory Zilka reported in the release that the treatment plant supplies water to around 200,000 residents of Lorain and Medina counties.
A similar incident occurred in the city last year, noted the release.
