Enderby restricts irrigation

The City of Enderby is requiring its water customers to avoid irrigating Thursday night and Friday morning

Due to a pump failure at a water source, the City of Enderby is requiring its water customers to avoid irrigating Thursday night and Friday morning.

“The irrigation restriction applies to all properties, including those which are allowed to irrigate during this time under the normal watering restrictions,” said Tate Bengtson, chief administrative officer.

“Hand watering of gardens, plants, and flowers is permitted during this time, as will other normal domestic, business and institutional uses.”

Due to the pump failure, the vity is down to a single source which is not sufficient to keep up with peak hourly demand at this time of year. It is anticipated that the pump will be repaired by Friday afternoon.

“By restricting irrigation, the water production rate should be sufficient to keep up with the demand rate, and will ensure that there is water for essential needs and fire flows,” said Bengtson.
