JUNCTION CITY, Kan. (WIBW) -- After seeing water use continually rise over the past week, Junction City officials are asking its residents to cut back for a while. On Friday, the city issued a Water Watch for everyone on its Public Water System.
City officials hope these voluntary restriction will help it avoid setting mandatory ones.
For now, the city is asking that you: only washing full loads of laundry, not letting faucets run unnecessarily, check your plumbing for leaks, and curtailing watering your lawn.
The ever-increasing use has pushed the city over the limits set by it Municipal Water Conservation Plan. Issuing these voluntary restrictions is the first stage of that plan and is design to ensure that the city can meet everyone's needs and make sure firefighters have the resources they need.
