City enacts level 5 water conservation, asks businesses to close
By LYNETTE SOWELL
Early Sunday morning, the City of Copperas Cove issued a notice that the community is in stage 5 emergency water conservation, and later closed its city pools until further notice. This notice came after a worker ruptured a 48- inch concrete water main at the Bell County Water Conservation District No. 1 in Belton on Saturday afternoon. Although Copperas Cove and other local communities receive water from the BCWCD which gets its water from Belton Lake, a few residents receive water from other sources as well, such as the Kempner Water Supply Corporation. Stage 5 asked water customers to limit their water use to essential use only.
