City of Auburn under Phase I Drought Watch.
More specifically, Dunn said the city is seven inches of rain behind where it should be this time of year.
Dunn said Lake Ogletree, the city’s primary source water supply.
“We have plenty of water,” Dunn said.
“This is more making sure we are being proactive to manage our reservoir throughout the year as well as to make sure our customers are being smart with their water use.” Customers are also reminded of the following steps to make the most efficient use of watering year round and especially during voluntary restrictions: Water at efficient times of the day to prevent evaporation due to heat and wind (after 8:00 PM and before 8:00 AM).
Check your sprinkler timer and make adjustments as needed.
Check your sprinkler system for leaks and make repairs in a timely manner to minimize water losses.
Do not let the water run while brushing your teeth, washing your face or washing dishes by hand.
Only run full loads of laundry or dishes.
By working together we can preserve the water supply and possibly prevent the need for mandatory restrictions.
