Voluntary Changes to Irrigation Requested

NOTICE: Voluntary Changes to Irrigation Requested

Gum Springs WSC # 1 Well Side is under stage 1 voluntary drought restriction. This is due to the excessive use in water during severe drought conditions.

Water customers are requested to voluntarily limit the use of water for landscape irrigation.

Addresses ending in an even number (0,2,4,6 or 8) can water Mondays and Thursdays

Addresses ending in odd number (1,3,5,7or 9) can water Wednesdays and Fridays

Irrigate landscapes only between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. on designated watering days.

Please no irrigation watering on the weekends.

We expect with the continued lack of rain in the forecast and the usual spike in usage over the weekends, the demand on our water system will be significant. If residential and commercial users will help by watering on the specified days and times, it will help prolong or possibly prevent the need to implement mandatory reductions.

Domestic water use for personal needs, for household or sanitary purposes such as drinking, bathing, cooking and sanitation do not need to be restricted.  You should also continue to water outdoor animals and livestock as normal.

If unsure if your residence is affected, please call our office, thank you.
