07/09/2012 - Mandatory Water Rationing Level 1 In Effect THIS NEWS ITEM EXPIRED 8/30/2012 AND IS NOT LONGER ACTIVE!
7/10/2012 In accordance with the City’s Drought Management Plan (DMP), Level 1 Mandatory Restrictions are now in effect in the City of Shawnee. According to the DMP, restrictions begin when Twin Lakes reaches an elevation of 1058 feet and/or the average weekly water treatment plant production exceeds 6.0 million gallons per day. At this time, the elevation of Twin Lakes is at 1067.00; however, water production is now exceeding 6.0 million gallons per day.
Residents and commercial customers may only water outside between the hours of 6:00 PM and 10:00 AM and are restricted to using water two days per week. Odd-numbered addresses (addresses whose last digit is an odd number) can water Monday and Thursday and even-numbered addresses (addresses whose last digit is an even number) can water Tuesday and Friday. In summary, no watering is permitted Saturday, Sunday, or Wednesday at all or between 10:00 AM and 6:00 PM on authorized days. Although failure to comply with watering restrictions is punishable by a fine, the City will first seek compliance through public education.
The City would like to emphasize that these watering restrictions are due to physical limitations of the City’s water treatment plant and not a shortage of water supply. Twin Lakes and Wes Watkins continue to operate at normal pool levels. A long-range utility study is currently underway that will, among many other things, identify needed improvements to the City’s water treatment capabilities.
The adopted DMP includes four levels of drought restrictions that are triggered as different conditions occur. Should the Level 1 restrictions be increased to Level 2 or higher, additional public notification will occur.
We appreciate your compliance and conservation. For more information, please contact the Shawnee Municipal Authority at 273-0890 or 273-1960 or visit us on the web at: http://www.ShawneeOK.org/SaveWater.
