BOPU Announces Normal Watering Schedule
The Cheyenne Board of Public Utilities says it now looks like local reservoirs will have enough water so that the city can maintain normal watering schedules this summer.
There had been concerns earlier this spring about the water reserves and whether special restrictions might need to be implemented to conserve water. But BOPU spokesman Clint Bassett says that even before the most recent spring storm to hit the area it looked as though there would be just enough water available to avoid special restrictions. He adds the snow the area has received in recent days can only help the local water supply.
Under the normal watering rules the BOPU expects to implement this summer, watering between the hours of 10am and 5pm is prohibited between May 1 and September 1. BOPU customers are allowed to water their lawns three days a week. Watering of gardens and flowers is allowed any day, but prohibited between 10am 5pm.
