Effective June 23, 2022, the City’s daily water demand has exceeded 60% of current capacity. The City of Minden has declared a Stage 1 Water Watch, until otherwise notified.
Per City Code, Sec. 86-190, the goal of a Stage 1 Water Watch is to raise both awareness regarding water conditions and to encourage the public to voluntarily reduce class 1 water uses by 7%. Class 1 uses are water used for outdoor watering including lawns and washing of vehicles or other exterior items. To put this into perspective, reducing your lawn watering cycle by 5 minutes would help the city achieve this goal.
If water usage continues to increase, the water conservation could be increased to a stage 2 or 3.
Stage 2: Water Warning Stage 3: Water Emergency
Staggered Outdoor Watering Schedule No outdoor watering
Reduce Usage by 15% of outdoor watering
