Conserve Our Water Please

There may have been information regarding water conservation shared by the City of Royse City, but I never got a notice. I guess I don't really need a notice since even I have noticed it has not rained since 1999! But just in case, I have noticed that people continue to water their lawns and waste our most precious natural source during a record breaking year for heat and drought. Please think before you turn that faucet handle! And now does anyone know what, if any restrictions have been set by our city? I also saw on the news that one town about our size and not very far from here, ran out of water! If our community's Council, Manager or Mayor have not set guidlines, set them yourself and do not wait for them.

Most towns are staying at some sort of restricted level in preparation of what we suffered the last couple of summers.

It has nothing really to do with the lake levels - we cannot pull water from Texoma due to zebra mussels.
