  Level 2 voluntary conservation measures continue to apply during the hot, dry weather when water usage tends to peak.

  Two of the city’s water supply wells that were down for repair recently have been returned to service, and residents’ efforts to comply with conservation measures have allowed for the mandate to be lifted.

  Continuing voluntary water conservation measures include:

  • Avoid watering lawns or flower beds between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. - peak usage times.
  • Outdoor pools should not be filled between the hours of 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. with a permit.
  • No new lawn seeding or sod installation should be done without a permit.
  • Drinking water sources should not be used for dust control or construction purposes.
  • Vehicle washing should be minimized. Using a bucket or hose with nozzle control can save water. Avoid wasting water by allowing it to run into driveways or streets. Automatic car washes will assist the City as best they can in reducing water usage.
  • Avoid power washing. Sweep sidewalks and driveways rather than hosing them down.

  The City will also continue working to reduce its water consumption during the conservation period, including limiting watering of public properties, ballfields and the golf course; limiting hydrant flushing; curtailing use of fountains; and limiting vehicle washing.
