you need to take on the day.

I just got off the phone with reporter Rob Davis, who called in from Mayor Jerry Sanders’ press conference to provide details of the city’s long-awaited mandatory water cut plan . Here are the details:

  • The city is going to call for a 45 percent reduction in outdoor water use from all of its customers and a 5 percent reduction in interior use from single- and multi-family residential users. It will also call for a 3 percent reduction for businesses indoors. The cuts are mandatory and will begin July 1.
  • If the regional cut from Metropolitan Water Department is less than 20 percent, the city will lower the amount of mandatory cuts for outdoor use.
  • City officials believe 21 percent of the single family customers will be exempt from the cuts because they use less than 4,488 gallons per month on average.
