NES, Metro Water Cease Turning Off Services Due To Heat
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Due to record breaking temperatures, Metro Water Services and the Nashville Electric Service have announced they will temporarily stop turning off services for non-payment.
Officials said the moratorium will be lifted only if the heat index falls below 105 degrees.
Leaders with both the Metro Water Services and the Nashville Electric Service sought to remind customers that residents can continue to get relief from the heat at Metro Parks Community Centers, Sportsplex and Golf Course Club Houses during normal operating hours. A water station is also located under Jefferson Street Bridge anytime the temperature is 100 degrees or higher, or if a Heat Advisory is issued.
