November 24, 2019 GMT

LIBERTY, Mo. (AP) — Residents of Liberty, Missouri, are being urged to conserve water because of a mechanical problem at the city’s water treatment plant.

The city said Sunday the water was safe, but output from the city’s water plant may be reduced until repairs are completed.

City officials say people who get their water from Liberty’s plant should avoid doing unnecessary laundry or taking long showers for the next several days.

The Kansas City Star reports that officials are working to repair the plant as soon as possible.
