Water restrictions begin

April 30, 2011

Stage 3 of the city of Big Spring's recently approved water conservation plan goes into effect Sunday, including a number of restrictions regarding outdoor water use, according to municipal officials.

The conservation plan — which calls for scheduled outdoor water usage to help the city cut water consumption by 10 percent — passed final reading April 26 on a unanimous vote from the Big Spring City Council.
According to city officials, 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. and 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. and 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. and 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. and midnight.

No outdoor water use — which includes watering lawns, filling swimming pools or hot tubs, the use of fountains and spas and washing vehicles — is allowed Mondays or between the hours of 10:01 a.m. and 6 p.m. on any day of the week.
