    40 local businesses visited during Water Wasters Season

    Thursday, August 28 2014 12:24 AM EDT2014-08-28 04:24:50 GMT
    Despite a high demand for water early in the summer, with the help of mother nature and our weekly water wasters report, city officials say we've been able to help save some water over the last few months. For the past two months, city data shows we've used around 1.5 million gallons of water. While that may seem like a lot, it's less than half of the amount of water we used during that same time in 2011.
