Voluntary Cut Back On Outdoor Water Usage In Carson City

Carson City, Nevada - Carson City Public Works Water Utility is initiating a Stage 1, Voluntary Cut Back on outdoor water usage through this coming weekend. Currently water demand is exceeding production capabilities.

We have seen declining tank levels this week due to the hotter temperatures, declining flows from the west side streams, and the fact we do not have the Marlette Lake production due to re-construction of that system. Overall the water system storage is currently at 44% or 16 million gallons which is less than we desire, but still sufficient for fire flows and daily domestic use. The following constitutes the Stage 1 restrictions:

• Contact the Carson City Parks Department and request that they voluntarily cut back outdoor irrigation of City parks, planters and City buildings as much as possible until further notice.

• Contact the Carson City School District and request that they voluntarily cut back outdoor irrigation as much as possible until further notice.

• Contact State Buildings and Grounds and request that they voluntarily cut back outdoor irrigation as much as possible until further notice.

• Contact Legislative Counsel Bureau Grounds Division and request that they voluntarily cut back outdoor irrigation as much as possible until further notice.

• Request that the Fire Department suspend all certification testing of Fire trucks and pumping equipment and suspend all drills with live water flow until further notice.

• Request that all residents in the affected areas voluntarily cut back outdoor irrigation as much as possible until further notice.

Carson City Public Works Water Utility will continue to monitor the situation closely and make adjustments and notifications as necessary to meet water demands.
