The City of Ozark Utility Department is requesting its customers to conserve water.
Due to the lack of recent rainfall, the groundwater supply has dropped to a level where we need to ask customers to begin to conserve water before some of the city’s water pumps lose access to water.
How you can help:
- Minimize outdoor watering as much as possible.
- Odd number addresses should water lawns only on odd number calendar days.
- Even number addresses should water lawns only on even number calendar days.
- Refrain from washing sidewalks, driveways, or other exterior surfaces.
- Limit washing of vehicles, boats, and other equipment.
- Limit filling or refilling of pools and hot tubs, tanks, or other vessels not used directly for public health.
Due to the heat and lack of recent rainfall, many of our customers have been using much higher than usual amounts of water for lawn irrigation. Lawn irrigation is a major draw on our water supply, which is why we ask residents to stop watering their lawns every day, and to at minimum cut back to every other day. We know how important it is to keep your lawn healthy, but we request your help to keep our water supply plentiful.
We understand that this may cause inconvenience, and we appreciate our residents' cooperation in this matter. Let's work together to conserve water and ensure that we have a sustainable supply for the future.
