Attention Rural Water Project Customers
Daily water use on the Little Blue Public Water Project for July 20th thru July 22nd averaged 220,000 gallons per day hitting a high of 234,000 gallons on Friday. The project asks that odd numbered addresses use outside-the-home water on Saturday, July 23rd and even number addresses use outside-the-home water on Sunday, July 24th. The goal is to spread the weekend use over separate days and avoid a high daily demand. Look for the next update on July 25th.
