The city’s new water conservation ordinance increases penalties for violators and urges big users to install water-friendly fixtures.
Last week, the City Council passed the ordinance after going through several versions over the last few months.
The ordinance is considered the first of a two-part strategy for conservation. The second is expected to bring more progressive water rates — in other words, even higher rates as a customer uses more water. Those new rates are slated to come before the council later this year.
