City council tightens water use restrictions

June 29, 2011

Beginning Friday, municipal water customers will be forced to cut back their outdoor water use yet again to make way for an overall 20 percent decrease in deliveries by the Colorado River Municipal Water District.

The Big Spring City Council approved the revision to its current Drought Contingency Plan — which is currently in Stage 3 — by a unanimous vote to decrease the number of days city water customers can water lawns and utilize water for outdoor activities and usages from three days each week to two days.
