SOLON (KWWL) -

The Solon Public Works Department is asking people to decrease water usage.

Late Thursday night Johnson County began doing reverse 911 calls. 

"The City of Solon requests all residents on city water and sewer to please decrease water and waste water usage until 8:00 am Friday August 12th," said the Johnson County Emergency Management Agency in a Facebook post.

The system is being overwhelmed. According to Johnson County Dispatch, Solon lost power during storms and the backup generator was not working properly.
