City to tighten water restrictions

June 27, 2011

Municipal water customers may have to cut back their outdoor use of water to two days instead of three, as the Big Spring City Council is expected to approve a revision to its Drought Contingency Plan Tuesday to accommodate yet another decrease in deliveries by the Colorado River Municipal Water District.

Assistant City Manager Todd Darden said CRMWD is set to decrease its water deliveries by a total of 20 percent beginning July 1, a move made necessary by the current extreme drought conditions.

“The City of Big Spring was notified that a mandated 20 percent decrease in water consumption would be instituted as of July 1 in order to meet the supply capabilities of the CRMWD delivery system,” Darden said. “This would limit the water the city can receive from CRMWD from 7.1 million gallons per day to 6.3 million gallons per day. In direct response to this decreased consumption amount, it has become necessary to further restrict outdoor watering for the citizens of Big Spring to two times a week.”

Tuesday's meeting is expected to get under way at 5:30 p.m. in the City Council Chambers, located at 307 E. Fourth Street. Fore more information call 264-2401.

I just don't understand our city at all.... First they restrict us on water because we're in a drought etc. Which I totally understand, but to then spend so much money and waste all that water on a "new" water "park", is just ridiculous!
