(JEFFERSONVILLE) - Residents of tornado-damaged Clark County are being urged not to wash their cars or water their lawns for at least the next two months to conserve water while repairs are made to the southern Indiana county's main water supply tank.

Repair work begins Friday on that 280,000-gallon water tank, which was damaged in the March 2 tornadoes that killed 13 Indiana residents.

Officials said the repairs are expected to take at least two months.

Water will continue to be supplied to residents from a smaller, 250,000-gallon owned by Rural Membership Water Corp. of Clark County.

Utility officials said the county will continue to have an ample water supply, but steps to avoid unnecessary water consumption will help in the event of an emergency, such as a fire.
