WaterOne is experiencing very high usage from its "South Booster" (see map) during the mornings on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Although WaterOne is producing enough water to supply this area under normal conditions, the extreme demand from 5-7 am on these days is drawing down storage levels and maxing out distribution capacity faster than our reservoirs in the "South Booster" area can recover.
Without cooperative action, this could cause low pressure problems in the South Booster and affect our ability to retain water reserves for fire suppression, if needed.
We are asking customers in this area to alternate outdoor watering based on their house number until further notice, as follows:
* Even # house: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
* Odd # house: Tuesday, Thursday, and the weekend
This is not yet a restriction. Customers can continue to use as much water as they need. We are asking for affected customers' voluntary cooperation to help WaterOne balance out demand by alternating the days of the week they water. With customers' help in the "South Booster" area, we can continue meeting their water needs both indoors and outdoors as well as maintain water reserves for public safety.
No other area of WaterOne's service district is affected.
For more information, residents can call the WaterOne Hotline at 913/599-9911 or Customer Service at 913/895-1800. Feel free to share us Facebook
