From Ivan Langford
The flow at the Thomas Mackey Water Treatment Plant is exceeding 85% of plant capacity this week. Therefore STAGE ONE of our DCP is in effect. We are requesting your assistance with VOLUNTARY reductions in water use and requesting your agency to send out public notices increasing their awareness of the need to conserve water.
ALSO, be advised that as the temperature increases over the next few days/weeks, it is highly likely that outdoor water demand will increase. Thus, it is highly likely we will move to STAGE TWO very soon. Under those conditions we will request your agency to enact MANDATORY outdoor watering restrictions; as an example, no more than twice per week outdoor watering.
Thank you for your cooperation,
Gulf Coast Water Authority
