From the Manager
WWSC continues to grow at a steady pace. In 2016 over 50 customers were added bringing our total to 2190. Long range plans are to produce another well and build another elevated storage. Short range plans for 2017 are to replace approximately 2.5 miles of existing line and install approximately 2 miles of new main to un-serviced areas.
You, as customers, have done an excellent job of conserving water, and are hereby commended. Please continue to do so to save our precious drinking water. Stay aware of any leaks you might have and repair them promptly. Be aware of where your meter box is and know how to turn it off. Install cut-offs at the meter and the house, conserve water!

Stage 1 Drought Restrictions
We have had several phone calls at the office asking about the Stage 1 Drought Restrictions. Here is the answer:
Every April 1, we automatically go into Stage 1 Drought Restrictions. We simply ask you to conserve water. There are no watering restrictions as far as watering your lawn or filling your swimming pool, we just request that you fix all leaking pipes and faucets, turn off the garden hoses when you are through with them, and repair all leaking toilets. For example, there are 1,440 minutes per day. If you have a toilet that leaks 4 oz. of water per minute, then you will have lost 5,760 oz. (45 gallons) per day. In a 30 day month, that amount equals 1,350 gallons per month!
Summertime means extra water usage for everyone. More clothes get washed, more showers are taken, lawns and gardens get watered, and water bills go up. But don’t let a leak or drip increase your water usage and raise your water bill. Fix the leaks and conserve water. Summer drought is always lurking just around the corner!
As your local water utility provider, we strive to keep you continually updated on all matters related to your water service. If you do not find the information you need, please contact our office and we will gladly assist you!
