Jekyll Island officials are requesting anyone still on Jekyll Island not to flush their toilets, run dishwashers or clothes washers, take showers or baths or run outdoor water.
"Any additional pressure or stress on our systems could be catastrophic to the infrastructure and personal property," an announcement from the Jekyll Island Authority said Wednesday.
The request is similar to one issued by the Brunswick-Glynn County Joint Water Sewer Commission for the mainland and St. Simons Island.
Nine different departments from the Jekyll Island Authority are working diligently to repair damage, the announcement said.
Like the rest of Glynn County for those trying to return, Jekyll Island remains closed.
