FOREST LAKES METROPOLITAN DISTRICT
STAGE II WATER SHORTAGE PROVISIONS
EFFECTIVE AUGUST 12, 2020
Due to the continued hot and dry conditions, the very low flows in Beaver Creek and the declining lake levels in Bristlecone Reservoir, effective August 12, 2020 Stage II Level A Mandatory Water Shortage Provisions will be enacted. These provisions basically make mandatory the current three day per week limits on outdoor irrigation and establish specific days for residents to water based on their addresses. Commercial users may only do outdoor watering on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Residential water users should not water for more than 3 hours per day on their designated day and should not water between 9 am and 6 pm.
The details of the Water Shortage Rules are available on the District’s website at forestlakesmetrodistrict.com.
The District’s landscaping contractor has been directed to limit irrigation for the park, open spaces and roadway landscaping to two days per week effective immediately. Residents will notice that the park, open space and roadway landscaping will begin to suffer a bit under these reduced watering mandates.
The FLMD Board also directed that if the Bristlecone lake level falls to 35 feet or less Stage II Level B restrictions will be enacted immediately.
