Mandatory Water Conservation

August 1 - October 1, 2018

The Goal: Together, use 85,000 gallons less water per day!

These rules apply to everyone residential, commercial, public or industrial except where necessary to protect public's health & safety.

Water Days = Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday & Sunday
No Water Days = Monday, Wednesday & Friday

Activities Not Allowed Until After October 1:

  • No City water shall be used for cleaning impervious surfaces like sidewalks, driveways, parking lots, patios, streets or other hard surfaces except where necessary to protect the public's health & safety.

  • No leaving water running while doing outdoor cleaning activities, like washing vehicles. The hose must be fitted with a shut-off nozzle or device attached that causes it to cease dispensing water immediately when not in use. 

  • No using more than 500 gallons to fill a swimming pool, hot tub or water feature.

  • Don't use water in a way that causes runoff. 

Conservation Activities - Allowed on Water Days

  • Watering lawns, flowers, gardens or any outdoor vegetation.

  • Top off swimming pool, hot tub or water feature.

  • Outdoor irrigation/watering between 9:00am and 6:00pm.

  • In all cases, customers are directed to use no more water than necessary to maintain landscaping.

  • Shorter showers, turning water off while brushing teeth, doing full loads of laundry and dishes and repairing leaky fixtures.

  • If you have a special circumstance you must contact Heidi Bell at City Hall for any allowance. 

  • Be water smart - think about your usage.

There are two reservoirs, but they function as a single unit. The reservoir height is measured every morning. Our goal is to have the reservoir at 30ft which equals 525,000 gallons.
