The Big Spring City Council is expected to approve the emergency reading of a resolution moving the city from State 3 to Stage 2 of the municipality's drought contingency plan during its Tuesday meeting, making water conservation by city customers voluntary instead of mandatory.
The city has been in Stage 3 of its drought contingency plan for several months now, since the Colorado City Municipal Water District made multiple restrictions to water consumption by its municipal customers due to the extremely low levels of its water reservoirs.
