With the recent rain events, cooler than normal temperatures and the adjusted overall reduced water uses within the City’s water system, the City is please to announce the termination the City Water Watch, in which the City has been under since July 2, 2013.
A Water Watch, the first of three stages of the City’s Municipal Water Conservation Plan - Short Term Conservation Measures, it is a voluntary measure in which the public is asked to voluntarily restrict their water uses, in order that the City’s overall water system is able to meet necessary demands for fire flow and overall domestic uses. This Water Watch was implemented as the daily demands had exceeded the minimum measures in the operations of the City’s system. The intent of this stage was to heighten awareness of the public on water condition uses, to maintain the integrity of the water supply system, and to ask for voluntary reductions in water use to delay or avoid implementing further mandatory restrictions.
As this voluntary restriction has been lifted, it is still asked that the public practice water conservation in their outdoor water use and to make efficient use of indoor water uses, i.e. wash full loads, don’t let faucets run, monitor their own plumbing for leaks and outdoor uses during the continued summer months.
Questions or for additional information on the City’s water system uses and Municipal Water Conservation Plan and/ or obtaining materials on water conservation measures may be directed to the City’s Engineering Department at (785) 238-3103.
