Beardstown Schools Closed for Week
As a result of the high flood waters, students in the Beardstown school district will have the week off from school.
Also, city officials are reminding residents of an ongoing water conservation order. Flood waters are threatening the water treatment plant, which has promoted officials to make this decision in order to keep a storage of water in elevated tanks.
Residents are asked to not water lawns or plants, or wash cars, houses, driveways, or other equipment unless it's absolutely necessary. Residents are also asked to limit the use of water in their homes.
