Peru residents urged to conserve water

(KLZA)-- The City of Peru is among the many communities along the Missouri River that are dealing with flooding.

The Peru water treatment plant has been flooded and residents are urged to conserve as much water as possible.  An effort is underway to fill the water tower with water being hauled in.

Water from the tap is safe to drink at this time.

Another issue is the Peru sewer lagoons have also been flooded which means sewage from the lagoons is in the flood water.  Because of the sewage in the flood waters, everyone is reminded to stay away from the flood water and do not go into the floodwaters.  If you are in the floodwaters, you can be issued a citation. 

Donations of bottled water, paper plates, plastic utensils ans such are being accepted at City Hall in Peru and Peru residents can come to City Hall and get needed supplies.  In addition,  2-1/2 gallon water bladders are available to residents to get to cook with.
