Council to put finishing touches on water ordinance

April 25, 2011

The Big Spring City Council will attempt to put the finishing touches on its summer plan to decrease water consumption Tuesday night.
The measure — which calls for scheduled outdoor water usage to help the city cut water consumption by 10 percent — passed first reading April 12 on a unanimous vote.

According to Assistant City Manager Todd Darden, Stage 3 of the plan includes a number of restrictions — aimed mainly at outdoor water usage, such as watering lawns, washing cars and filling swimming pools — which are expected to go into effect May 1.

Darden said residents with even address numbers — such as 110, 112 or 114 — will be 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.

City officials said outdoor water usage includes watering lawns, filling swimming pools or hot tubs, the use of fountains and spas and washing vehicles.

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