The city is very close to launching a residential recycled water hauling program. This program would deliver up to 500 gallons per residential water customer each week. Residents are responsible for sourcing or purchasing their own storage tanks, totes, or barrels. Storage tanks should be placed no more than 75 ft from the front property line to allow for deliveries. Residents are also responsible for the equipment necessary to apply the recycled water to their landscaping (hoses and piping). Residents can email the City at email@example.com and provide address, contact information, and size of their storage tanks. The City if finalizing the contract for hauling recycled water and plans to have deliveries underway within two weeks.
