Kenai city officials are requesting people observe voluntary water conservation measures while the new water treatment plant is coming online.
According to a press release, the water demand has exceeded the city's production capacity for the past two weeks.
The conservation measures include:
• Watering lawns/gardens twice per week for two hours in the evening
• Limit or eliminate washing of vehicles
• Do not wash paved or asphalt areas
• any other water conservation measures
The city is currently re-developing an existing well and drilling a new well which contributed to the water shortage as well according to the release.
