East Palestine ends appeal to conserve

EAST PALESTINE – Village residents no longer have to conserve water.

The village’s water foreman, John Jurjavcic announced Thursday evening that the reservoir has again reached normal capacity, allowing them to cancel the conservation request.

East Palestine ran out of water Saturday after a myriad of problems stemming the deep freeze that week.

Water started returning bit by bit on Monday. The boil order was lifted Wednesday afternoon.
