Our annual rainfall varies from 13 to 16 inches per year. We are a high desert. Our city only has stored enough water to last for about a month. Droughts have happened here and will happen again. Peterson Dam needs repair. Silt has reduced the storage capacity of both Bradner and Peterson reservoirs. Water conservation must occur for our city to survive.
We must treat our water as the precious resource that it is. Citizens that use more water should pay higher rates than those who conserve.
