CASTINE – The people of Castine are facing a water shortage – and are looking towards others to help.
The town routinely has issues meeting demand towards the end of summer. But this year, the situation is so severe, they’ve been forced to purchase water from Bucksport.
Officials say they’re buying about six thousand gallons a day.
Those in Castine have been sent letters on how best to conserve water. Tips include using bath water to feed plants and use rain water to fill toilet tanks.
