The city of Casper is complying with the irrigation ban instituted by the Central Wyoming Regional Water Joint Powers Board and shut off its sprinklers for city buildings and parks.

Watering ban doesn’t apply to well water:

In a press release Tuesday, Public Services Director Gary Clough says they are still watering the ball fields at Crossroads Park Complex because that water comes from wells, which are not a part of the irrigation which remains in effect until Thursday.

Mr. Clough also said that minimal watering of new turf, gardens and trees, would be acceptable during the hours of less demand, between 10 at night and 4:30 in the morning.

The irrigation ban is the result of a ruptured intake pipe at the water treatment plant, which was discovered Monday. The water treatment plant is needed to supplement fresh water wells during the summer when irrigation turns up water demand, going from 6 million to as much as 25 million gallons a day.
