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 â€” which calls for scheduled outdoor water usage to help the city cut water consumption by 10 percent â€” passed final reading April 26 on a unanimous vote from the Big Spring City Council.
According to city officials, residents with even address numbers â€” such as 110, 112 or 114 â€” 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 â€” such as 111, 113 and 115 â€” 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 â€” which includes watering lawns, filling swimming pools or hot tubs, the use of fountains and spas and washing vehicles â€” is allowed Mondays or between the hours of 10:01 a.m. and 6 p.m. on any day of the week.
