Water deliveries cut again

June 9, 2011

The summer of 2011 is about to become even drier than anticipated.

Colorado River Municipal Water District officials announced this week that water deliveries to the district's member cities — which have already been cut by 10 percent — will be slashed by another 10 percent effective July 1.

Reduced pumping capability is being cited as the main reason for the district's latest move.

“(The water district's) original calculation on the water they could produce from the Lake Ivie system changed as the lake levels changed,” said Todd Darden, Big Spring's assistant city manager.

This latest decision means daily water deliveries to Big Spring will decrease to roughly 6.3 million gallons, Darden said.

CRMWD General Manager John Grant was unavailable for comment this morning.
