Days after Tropical Storm Eta drenched South Florida, some parts of Broward County are still trying to dry out.

Now, officials are asking for the public’s help to make that happen as quickly as possible.

According to a report from WSVN-TV, the Southern Regional Wastewater Treatment Center says crews have made significant progress clearing the water using 24 pump trucks.

However, managers explained they are processing twice the amount of wastewater due to effects from the storm.

With that in mind, residents in Hollywood, Pembroke Pines, Dania Beach, Hallandale Beach, Miramar, and Pembroke Park are being asked to reduce their water use through Friday.

The report goes on to say the request asks that people reduce shower time, limit toilet flushing, and avoid running dishwashers or doing laundry.
