Based on recent water use trends combined with higher than normal water use projections, it is the recommendation of the City of Sweetwater's consulting engineers Enprotec/Hibbs & Todd, that the city enter into Stage 1 Drought Condition as described in the city's Drought Contingency Plan.
The city uses five stages of drought response in its Drought Contingency Plan with Stage 1 being least severe and least restrictive to system users.
During Stage 1, all customers are asked to curtail use of water for nonessential purposes on a voluntary basis. Stages 2-5 involve mandatory curtailment of water use and while being initiated in the future if necessary.
