Stage Three, or mandatory water conservation, was put into affect a little early this year. In March, residents were given three days a week and particular hours to do things like water their grass. That's because our water levels in our reservoirs were getting almost dangerously low. "We need to learn how to conserve water. Yes, Amistad was pretty good and it's still pretty good but for a while back in March, the amount of water it had in its reservoir was approaching 25% right now it's at 40%." But just how many people complied with the mandatory water conservation? "There were 886 warnings for those who did not comply with the stage three." Lucky for them, all those people were just warned. Eleven people were actually given a citation and now they owe a $500-fine. Water Utilities Director Tomas Rodriguez is still asking the public to help conserve water. "Even though we are relieving the water restrictions, I still recommend that people use common sense about water and try to conserve." The Amistad reservoir is back up to 40-percent now thanks to water conservation and the all the rain we have had.
