CITY OF LEAVENWORTH ASKS COMMUNITY TO CONSERVE WATER DURING THE HEAT WAVE
LEAVENWORTH, WA – The City of Leavenworth is asking the community to conserve water during the heat wave. The City Water Plant produced over 2 million gallons of water for the community on Monday, June 28. This volume of production usually is not needed until much later in the summer, and could be worrisome if high temperatures continue.
“We are asking the community to help us in our conservation efforts, so that we can continue to provide water without restricting uses” said Mayor Florea. In the City of Leavenworth, all water, even hose water, is considered approved for domestic use (a more technical term for drinking water).
Ways to help conserve water include: reducing frequency of irrigation or watering of lawns and gardens from daily to every other day; watering later in the evening or earlier in the morning when temperatures are coolest, and avoiding high water-use activities like filling pools and washing cars.
The City is already reducing water usage at the parks, cemetery, and ball fields, and is hoping the conservation efforts of the community ensures the City does not have to implement official water use restrictions.
