Stage 1 Water Watch
Public Wholesale Water Supply District #20 addresses its short-term water shortage problems through
a series of stages based on conditions of supply and demand with accompanying triggers, goals, and actions.
Each stage is more stringent in water use than the previous stage since water supply conditions are more deteriorated.
The goals of this stage are to heighten awareness of the public on
water conditions and to maintain the integrity of the water supply system.
This stage is triggered by any one of the following conditions:
1. The District's storage has fallen below 85% capacity and will not recover,
2. The Lake or reservoir elevation is 3' below normal seasonal level,
3. Demand for one day is in excess of 0.65 million gallons/day.
1. The District will make occasional news releases to the local media describing
present conditions and indicating the water supply outlook for the upcoming season.
2. The District will place inserts in each entity's water bill
outlining tips on conserving water indoors and outdoors.
1. Leaks will be repaired within 48 hours of detection.
2. The District will monitor its use of water and will curtail activities such as hydrant flushing and street cleaning.
The public will be asked to curtail some outdoor water use and to make efficient
use of indoor water, i.e. wash full loads, take short showers, don't let faucets run, etc.
Please call Sedan's water superintendent, Sherry Miller, at 620-725-3193 if you have questions.
Thank you for your cooperation.
