Constantly being drenched in sweat is not the only thing that Austin citizens will need to worry about this summer. The city of Austin has just announced that the city will now be in the conservation stage of water restrictions.
Due to the excessive summer heat, water can be easily wasted if neglected. The conservation stage enforces several water restrictions, some of which include:
- Sprinklers will be restricted to only night time use between the hours midnight to 10 am
- Fountains must recirculate water
- Restaurants may not serve water unless requested by a customer
- Wasting water is prohibited
Some lenience can be approved on a per case basis, but must be filed with the city officials. Violating any of these restrictions can lead to a fine up to $500 per violation. Citizens are encouraged to report all violations to the city by calling 3-1-1 or submitting a report online.
The low cost of water in this nation has seemed to demean the value of water. Water is still a limited resource and there are many people across the world who suffer from dehydration daily. Make the most of your water by using the filtration systems of American Water TX to purify your water. Call our offices today at (512) 388-0022 to hear more about the benefits of a water system.
