Water-Sewer manager Eric Carty issued the following statement Friday morning.
With temperatures rapidly rising, groundwater levels rapidly declining and no rain in sight, water demands have skyrocketed. We are pumping at full capacity to try and maintain water use during one of the driest stretches for this time of year ever recorded since records started being kept in the 1800s. We are nearing levels that will require us to start cutting pump production.
It is imperative that everything follow the water use restrictions and only use water out doors when absolutely necessary. Lawn watering is only allowed twice per week by precinct and not at all on Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays. It is extremely important that everyone complies to ensure adequate supplies for firefighting and daily essential needs.
