(KCEN) -- The entire city of Marlin experienced a loss of water pressure last night and it could last for several days.
That's after Marlin's water treatment plant had a mechanical failure.
Now people living there are being asked to conserve water until further notice.
The city is recommending people reduce their time spent in the shower and turn the water off while brushing teeth or rinsing dishes.
Also, only wash full loads in the dishwasher or washing machine and minimize the use of garbage disposal.
What water is consumed should be boiled first.
