What is the difference between a Water Watch and a Water Warning?
What is a Water Watch?

A Water Watch may be issued when conditions indicate an increased risk that the water supply is experiencing higher-than-usual usage that may require voluntary water conservation efforts to avoid the water supply from reaching a level that impacts critical infrastructure.

What is a Water Warning?
A Water Warning may be issued when the water supply is facing serious challenges that require immediate action. Water shortages threaten the city’s ability to meet essential water needs for public safety and the community. Mandatory actions are required during a Water Warning such as eliminating non-essential water use, conserving indoor water use up to 1,000 gallons per week until warning is lifted, and emergency preparedness measures.
