Officials in Wheeling asking customers use less water

Updated: Thursday, June 12 2014, 05:49 PM EDT

WHEELING, W.Va. - The Wheeling Water Department has issued a water conservation order to all of its customers and those in surrounding areas.
It's part of the new water plant treatment construction.
"This is the first time that tanks have been drained and emptied," Public Works director Rusty Jebbia said. "That's why we're asking for this conservation request."
The department's focus is on the summer extras, like washing the car, filling the pool, or running the sprinkler.
 "Use water as you normally would through your regular daily routines," Jebbia said.
The nearly $31 million project will help to improve the city's water quality. Construction began last May and is expected to wrap up sometime next year.
"Our old plant was built in 1923," Jebbia said. "This new plant is going to be one of the more modern technology type plants with the membrane system, so we're just trying to provide the best quality of water that we can to our customers."
City officials said it will not affect water quality, so don't expect any boil orders.
