Council passes water conservation measure

The Big Spring City Council voted unanimously in favor of enacting Stage 3 of its recently approved water conservation plan Tuesday evening, part of an ongoing effort to cut municipal water consumption by 10 percent.

Enforcement of the Stage 3 restrictions is expected to begin May 1, according to Assistant City Manager Todd Darden.

Darden said residents with even address numbers — such as 110, 112 or 114 — are being required to limit their use of water outdoors to Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays between the hours of 12:01 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. to midnight.

Water customers with odd address numbers — such as 111, 113 and 115 — are required to limit their outdoor use of water to Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, also between the hours of 12:01 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. to midnight.
