“’Water , water everywhere , nor any drop to drink . ’ You wouldn’t think that would be the case in Hot Springs and Garland County , Arkansas , where there are an abundance of streams , rivers and lakes . You would think water would be plentiful . But that is not always so , ” said Hot Springs Mayor Pat McCabe . “We all remember February 2021 with the snow and freezing weather that came upon us . We had more than 3 , 000 busted water lines to residential homes . That depleted our water resources , including our brand new 3 million gallon water tank that was just put into play four months earlier . So it’s important for us to conserve water each and every day . Please join me in the water challenge – Wyland National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation . Conserve water each and every day . Make your pledge today at
