If your water pressure seems a little bit lower than usual, there's a reason.

Shreveport Water & Sewer Department workers are doing some maintenance work this week at the T.L. Amiss Water Purification Plant. This is routine maintenance work and, usually, Shreveport residents don't even know that it's going on. But, because of current weather conditions and high demand on the system, city officials expect some residents to experience lower water pressures.

In a news release, the City says plant personnel will try to minimize the inconvenience as much as possible and the the work will have no adverse affect on water quality. The work is expected to take from five to seven days to complete.

In the meantime, the City continues to urge residents and businesses alike to conserve water whenever possible because of the ongoing drought conditions.
