Officials: Tuesday rain not enough to reverse shortage in Greenwich

Emergency management officials in Greenwich said Tuesday that the day's heavy rain would not be enough to solve the current water shortage.



Greenwich Emergency Management Director Dan Warzoha says that before the day's rain, the town was facing a nearly 6-inch deficit.



He says that even if Greenwich gets 3 inches of rain, it will not make up for 18 months of drought.



Warzoha says Greenwich still has some water restrictions in place, and he doesn't see that changing any time soon.



The Aquarion Water Company, which serves Greenwich, is asking people to reduce their usage by 20 percent.
