Water tower reserves falling due to dry extended spell, heat

At Monday night’s Benson City Council meeting Gens reported that water levels have been falling in the water tower and that regenerating the reservoir has been challenging.
Part of the reason for the falling levels is that due to continuing hot and dry weather, people are watering their lawns more often and for longer periods.
