The north central Idaho town of Winchester continues to struggle with what it calls "severely restricted" water usage while it attempts to find a new solution for its shortage.
This morning's Lewiston Tribune reports that the Lewis County town of Winchester on Idaho's Camas Prairie is ending a second summer of water restrictions. Residents are kept from any outdoor water use, except for hand-watering plants.
Winchester is drawing water from four wells, but production was dropped from 20 gallons per minute down to 6 gallons per minute and water pressure will drop at a moment's notice.
Meanwhile, Winchester officials say they'll probably have to put a bond before voters this November in order to attract matching grants to locate a new, more reliable water source and a storage facility to house it.
