The initial restriction was implemented on Monday, June 28 due to a combination of hot temperatures and limitations with the pumping systems, leading to some customers experiencing low water pressure in southeast pockets of the city.
"Thank you to everyone who helped conserve water," said Audrey Cudrak, EPCOR Director of Water Treatment Plants. "Our customers in the southeast reduced their water consumption to help manage demands during the latest run of hot temperatures."
Though the water restriction request has been lifted, EPCOR always recommends wise water use practices such as setting up a rain barrel and watering your lawn outside of peak use hours. You can find more information about EPCOR's water stewardship, and tips for simple conservation at epcor.com.
