The City of Sedan and all of Chautauqua County, along with a portion of Montgomery County, are in the next stage of a water warning.
According to the city, the warning has moved to Stage 2 because of lake or reservoir elevation being five feet below the normal seasonal level.
Public Wholesale Water Supply District 20, which supplies water to 11 different entities across the counties, says that district water supplies will be monitored daily.
Sedan Water Superintendent Sherry Miller says that the city is enforcing regulation actions as well during the warning. A new odd/even lawn watering system will be imposed, outdoor water use will be restricted to before 10 a.m. and after 9 p.m., golf courses will restrict watering to after sunset, and refilling of swimming pools will occur one day a week after sunset.
Miller, who also serves as the President of the District 20 Board, says that excess water use charges will be considered during this time.
KGGF will continue to provide updates as they become available.
