ANDERSON — After more than a week of asking residents to conserve water, The City of Anderson says water levels are back to normal.

The city made the voluntary request after reporting higher than normal pumping rates.

"I want to thank our citizens and businesses who voluntarily complied with our request, as it allowed us to recover to appropriate water levels. We began to see positive results by day two, and each day thereafter our water levels climbed," Neal McKee, Director for the City of Anderson’s water department, said.

Officials blamed aging infrastructure, drought like conditions and the extreme cold weather for their lack of water.

“Once you’ve hit a certain low in your towers, it takes you a little longer to get them back up,” McKee added.
