Water districts weathering drought with help from customers
Thursday, August 9, 2012
Watering restrictions enacted by two public water districts serving Jefferson City have helped the districts deal with the high demand for water during the drought, and they continue to remain in effect.
In early July, the districts issued voluntary restrictions on unnecessary water usage, including watering lawns.
“There have been enough people who are cooperating and that have cut back on their water that we are holding our own,” said David Kempf, manager of Water District No. 1.
