CCU warns high water demand impacting water pressure
Charlotte Sun-Herald – Apr 23, 2006
This is a result of the recent increase in demand placed on the CCU system. The source of water for 95 percent of CCU customers is the Peace River, which is currently flowing below the allowable level for withdrawal of water.

CCU is asking its customers to conserve and comply with the present Charlotte County water restrictions: * Addresses ending in an even number, or letters A through M: water Tuesday only. * Addresses ending in an odd number, or letters N through Z (and locations where no address can be determined): Sunday only.

The leaks are of critical concern for two reasons: * Petroleum products have benzene, toluene, and other substances known to cause cancer or other health problems, including brain, heart, and lung damage. Young children are especially vulnerable. * About half the nation’s drinking water supply comes from groundwater. Some cities, such as Dayton and Springfield in Ohio, draw most of their drinking water from groundwater. A pinhole leak that emits even a gallon of gasoline has the potential to contaminate up to 1 million gallons of groundwater. Ohio has 3,460 confirmed releases of gasoline and other petroleum leaks that have not been cleaned up, the nation’s 11th worst backlog. Nearly 700 are in northwest Ohio, including 179 in Lucas County and 76 in Wood County.
