City council signs on to CRMWD conservation program

February 8, 2011

Anticipating a shortage of water in the coming months, Big Spring City Council on Tuesday approved first reading of a resolution supporting and participating in a regional water education and conservation program developed and implemented by the Colorado River Municipal Water District.

Talks between CRMWD and its member cities have been ongoing for some time now, centering around water conservation heading into the coming summer.

According to City Manager Gary Fuqua, the water district is launching an education campaign that includes an advertising blitz to remind water customers of the importance of water conservation in the area.

Two of the water district's four main sources of water — Lakes Thomas and Spence — are at critically low levels, leaving Lake Ivie and the Ward County underground water well fields as CRMWD's only dependable sources of water, according to CRMWD General Manager John Grant.
