The Department of Water Supply said water conservation can extend water supplies and help reduce demand.

They ask you conserve water by refraining from washing your cars, irrigating lawns or washing down sidewalks and driveways.

The department is anticipating power to be restored this afternoon. However, bringing water delivery systems fully back online is expected to take until the early morning of Thursday, Aug. 11.
