Your teamwork with us on water conservation efforts the last several weeks has been much appreciated! Community water usage and water production at the treatment plant have been stable and balanced. We’ve been watching the weather conditions closely to see when we could consider easing the conservation order.
On August 25th, City Council acted to ease the current conservation order on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays beginning August 31.
What does this mean?
On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, residents are able to use water as they did before the conservation order went into effect. Irrigation, gardening, trees, plants, sprinklers for the kids and pools can all occur.
These days were chosen to try to ease us back to more “normal” water usage and provide Tuesdays and Thursdays and weekends for recovery at the plant.
Will the conservation order go back into effect again?
It could, yes. If the volume of community water usage again exceeds the ability to produce necessary levels at the plant and keep water in the tower for emergencies, the order would go back into place until things are safe again. Our recommendation is to proceed with water usage with conservation
