“We ask that all utility customers conserve water by considering the following measures: limit non-essential water uses, check for leaks at your home or business, make sprinkler adjustments to avoid watering sidewalks, driveways, and roadways, and avoid watering your grass as much as possible (please do not water your yard between noon and 7 p.m.),” a City of Nederland release read Tuesday morning.

“Every customer helping to do their part will ensure the protection of the City of Nederland’s water system.”
