SACKETS HARBOR — In a message sent out Thursday to residents from the village of Sackets Harbor Department of Public Works, it was stated that recently there has been a “drastic increase in water consumption for the Village.”

Citing the lack of rain and high temperatures as playing roles in the increased consumption, one of the main concerns of the village is now the availability of water in the event of a fire.

“With that being said, we understand that water is a necessity and request that residents be mindful of their water consumption at this time,” the letter read. “Please limit your water usage for non-priority car washing, pressure washing, and lawn watering.”
