Danbury reservoir levels slightly below normal

Connecticut is at a Stage 2 Drought level due to precipitation across the state being below normal.  Danbury Public Works Director Antonio Iadarola says reservoir levels in the City are at about 82 percent.  Normally they're at 85-percent at this time of year so not too far off. He did tell the City Council at their meeting last week that they were in a bit of an uncomfortable position with the level of water they were pumping. He said he's never, in all of the years he's been in the City, seen some of the demands that creeped up on them.  The plants can push out 8-and-a-half to 9 million gallons and crews were able to ramp up reservoirs so water tank levels are starting to come up.  He notes that they were maintained at a level the Department is comfortable with.  State officials say residents should be mindful of their water consumption and take sensible steps to reduce impacts from now to mitigate the potential for harm should the drought become prolonged.
