Why are there water restrictions?

The City has been monitoring the water levels at our wells. This monitoring effort as well as numerous regional reports have shown that the levels within the City’s wells are declining. Some well pumps are starving for water and sucking air. The restrictions allow for irrigation watering during times of less strain on the system. This reduces the amount of air in the system and conserves water due to efficiency.
