City commissioners downgrade to ‘water watch’
In the midst of a persistent drought, the Hays City Commission earlier this year moved the city from a Stage 1 Water Watch to a more restrictive Stage 2 Water Warning.
But after much of the region received significant rainfall during the last month, commissioners Thursday voted to relax water restrictions back to the Water Watch levels.
The motion to change the city’s water-conservation status passed 3-2, with commissioners Shaun Musil and Kent Steward voting against.
