Having struggled through last summer to meet water allotments set by the Colorado City Municipal Water District, made necessary by the ongoing drought, this season has served as a marked contrast for the city of Big Spring, as the municipality continues to stay well below the district's restrictions.
According to Assistant City Manager Todd Darden, the most water the city â€” including municipal raw water consumer Alon USA â€” has used this summer is 5.7 million gallons in a day, well below the 6.3 million gallons per day allocated by CRMWD.
Big Spring Independent School District officials will show off their new elementary campuses Tuesday.
BSISD will conduct ribbon cutting ceremonies at the four new campuses, beginning at 4 p.m. Tuesday.
The ceremonies will begin at Moss Elementary, 3200 Fordham, and proceed in order to Washington Elementary, 1201 S. Birdwell, Goliad Elementary, 2000 S. Goliad, and Marcy Elementary, 2101 Wasson.
Following the ribbon cutting at Marcy, school officials will conduct public tours of the campus.
For more information, contact the school district at 264-3600.
