From our discussion at Planning today, folks are doing a pretty good job with our normal watering restrictions <praise on> but there is still some significant usage (watering) on Mondays when no one should be watering <praise off>.
Mondays are when the city system is recharged (my non-technical overview) – for the rest of the week.
Kudos to city staff for closely monitoring our overall water capacities. City council will be updated regularly in the next while.
From the city’s site:
