It might be low, but Lake Springfield’s level has stayed steady since last fall. CWLP Water Division Manager Ted Meckes says there are no plans to enact further water restrictions at this time. But he says if the drought continues and the lake drops more during the spring or summer, water customers would face more limitations:
MECKES ‘We have a plan that is 6 stages. We are in Stage 3 right now as the lake is more than 2 feet down. Stage 4 would come when we are 4 feet down.”
The current restrictions limit outdoor watering, including home car washing. Restaurants are also asked to only serve water to customers when it’s requested.
