Water top topic on council agenda

July 11, 2011

Water will be the topic of choice during Tuesday night's meeting of the Big Spring City Council, as the group is expected to discuss ways to keep up with recent decreases in water deliveries by the Colorado River Municipal Water District.

The Big Spring City Council approved a revision to its current Drought Contingency Plan — which is currently in Stage 3 — by a unanimous vote approximately two weeks ago to decrease the number of days city water customers can water lawns and utilize water for outdoor activities and usages from three days each week to two days.

The new cutback from CRMWD limits the water the city can receive from CRMWD from 7.1 million gallons per day to 6.3 million gallons per day — a 20 percent reduction compared to previous years — Assistant City Manager Todd Darden said.
