STEPHENVILLE, N.L. A water shortage in Stephenville, N.L., has once again forced town officials to call for conservation measures.

Mayor Tom OBrien says the recent spell of hot, dry weather is taking its toll on the towns supply, and water consumption is exceeding the towns ability to produce more.

The mayor says the situation is critical and he is asking residents to refrain from watering lawns and washing vehicles.

OBrien says the town is also asking residents to stop filling swimming pools or using water cooled equipment, such as freezers and air conditioners.
