Murray State College Lifts Temporary Emergency Indoor Water Restrictions
October 27, 2022
Murray State’s emergency indoor water conservation efforts have included the use of paper products in the cafeteria, bottled water has been provided in lieu of water fountain use and a comprehensive water use awareness campaign across all campus communities was implemented.
In response to the critically low water level, the City of Tishomingo installed an emergency pipeline that runs from a supplemental water source. This additional water has raised levels enough that indoor restrictions at Murray State are being lifted.
“While this is a welcome point of relief on restrictions for our college,” said Dr. Tim Faltyn, Murray State College President, “we are still in a very serious situation and strongly encourage everyone to continue to practice responsible conservation efforts.”
The City of Tishomingo remains in Stage 5 of their Water Conservation Stages, which prohibits outdoor watering of any kind. Therefore, Murray State will continue to restrict all outdoor watering and irrigation practices.
“We appreciate and respect the city’s diligence with regard to conservation efforts,” Faltyn said. “The leadership, time, and resources they've dedicated to the people and businesses in this community are greatly appreciated. We support and are proud to be partners with the City of Tishomingo.”
