Culver requests water conservation, fireworks prohibited in drought’s wake

Due to the lack of significant rainfall, residents are encouraged to take steps to conserve water outside as well as inside their homes. Some suggestions for conserving bggwater outside include watering early in the morning or in the evening just a couple of times per week, checking sprinklers to make sure they are not wasting water on the sidewalk, driveway or streets, using a hose with a hand-held nozzle to water flowers and shrubs. Limit washing vehicles or other modes of transportation.

Inside the home, fix leaky faucets, pipes and toilets, run washing machines and dishwashers only when full.

Those with questions or concerns please contact town hall at 574-842-3140.

As of press time, Culver’s annual public fireworks display has been suspended, according to Ken VanDePuttee of the Culver fire department, following a Disaster Declaration last week from Clyde Avery, Marshall County EMA Director, prohibiting the use of fireworks county-wide. Private use of fireworks are also prohibited in the declaration. County officials continue to monitor conditions and update the public on a weekly basis as to the status of the county-wide burn ban.
