5/6: City Council Approves Water Conservation Resolution

At the May 4th City Council Meeting, the City Council approved the Resolution Implementing Water Waste Prohibitions and Water Conservation Measures: Stage 1 - Voluntary Conservation. In order to achieve an overall system-wide reduction goal of 10 percent. All potable water customers of the City are requested to:

  1. Apply irrigation water only during the evening and early morning hours to reduce evaporation losses.

  2. Inspect all irrigation systems, repair leaks, and adjust spray heads to provide optimum coverage and eliminate avoidable overspray.

  3. For irrigation valves controlling water applied to lawns, vary the minutes of run time consistent with fluctuations in weather.

  4. Reduce minutes of run time for each irrigation cycle if water begins to run off to gutters and ditches before the irrigation cycle is completed.

  5. Utilize water conservation rebate and giveaway programs to replace water guzzling plumbing fixtures and appliances with water efficient models.

  6. Utilize City information regarding using water efficiently, reading water meters, repairing ordinary leaks, and how to make your landscape a water efficient landscape. See the City's Water Conservation web page here
