EXECUTIVE ORDER ST-05
WHEREAS, On February 20, 2010, I did issue a Declaration of Local Disaster for the City of Big Spring;
WHEREAS, Ongoing repair and restoration efforts of the Big Spring water treatment and distribution system require conservation on the part of all Big Spring residents and businesses;
NOW THEREFORE, I, Shannon D. Thomason, Mayor of the City of Big Spring, do order that:
The following water conservation practices shall be taken by residents of and businesses in the City of Big Spring that rely on water delivered by the City:
Only use water for basic health and hygiene purposes for you and your pets. Do not wash vehicles, water plants or lawns, or use water for any recreational purposes.
All businesses must take steps to maximize water conservation. Again, limit water use to basic health and hygiene purposes
C. Water Reliant Businesses:
Businesses that provide water based services must take immediate steps to limit water consumption. Only those businesses that provide public heath and hygiene services may operate.
1. Laundromats: Limit customers to no more than three loads of laundry per visit.
2. Car Washes: Not permitted at this time.
It is our hope that temporarily taking these steps to minimize the use of treated water will assist in the efforts of the City of Big Spring in repairing and restoring water service to all the residents and businesses of Big Spring as quickly as possible.
SO, ORDERED and SIGNED this 20th day of February, 2021
SHANNON D. THOMASON, MAYOR
