48-hour Mandatory Freeze on all Lawn Irrigation

Dear RCH Members,

Effective immediately, there is a 48-hour mandatory freeze on all lawn irrigation. This urgent measure is necessary due to a massive surge in water usage last night, which peaked at 2.7 million gallons, particularly between 12 am and 8 am this morning. This spike has severely depleted our reserve levels and reduced water pressure to critical lows.

To restore our reserves to safe levels and avoid further strain on our system, all lawn irrigation must cease for the next 48 hours. Failure to comply with this mandate will result in our reserves reaching critical levels, potentially forcing us into Stage 4 water restrictions, which would severely limit water usage for all members.

This action is crucial to maintaining the safety and reliability of our water supply. We will monitor the situation closely over the next 24 hours and update you on the stage level that will be in effect.

Thank you for your immediate cooperation.
