Some Webster Parish residents are being asked to conserve water. The water system in the Gilark community has been running low. Earlier this week its tank only had about 2-feet of water in it. To fix that problem, water officials tapped into the City of Minden`s water supply. Officials also lowered the water pressure on the system`s new wells. Donald O`Rear says the water unit is about 40-years old and is built to supply to a hundred homes. It is supplying to 200. "Cut down on watering the yard, the amount they use in the pool,and washing their car; basically, we have asked them to use it for home consumption," said O`Rear. The system should recover but conservation will ensure that it does.
