Town of Clayton has water issues

Posted: Updated:

CLAYTON, La. (KNOE 8 News)- The drastic Winter weather has caused an uncomfortable and inconvenient problem for the residents of Clayton.

The water system is having a hard time keeping up with demand.

Residents who have tried to avoid freezing pipes by allowing faucets to drip are ending up high and dry.

"When everybody has their water wide open we can barely keep up with producing water. we have about 350 customers on water and when everybody has their water open up to stop from freezing their pipes. the plant can't really keep up," Mayor Rynell Turner said.

Mayor Turner has applied for a grant to replace the old water system, he should know if that will happen this Spring.
