Water Production/Use Report

The data below shows the Water Treatment Plant (WTP) production per day. The household use is derived from data taken at the Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP). The difference between the two figures would be the estimated use for irrigation.

Data provided is for general use per day based on a population number of 21,485.  The number is comprised of all residential, business and commercial accounts including tourists.

Mandatory Water Curtailment Stage 1

Our community has taken mindful steps to use water wisely this summer and we want to thank you for all your efforts. However, recent weather conditions, fire related access to the TAP intertie system being temporarily compromised, the current demand on the water system is higher than the inflow from the East and West Forks of Ashland Creek to Reeder Reservoir. In other words, the City’s Reservoir supply is no longer keeping up with the water demands of our community on its own. Some of the water demand is seasonal or unnecessary and needs to cease for the season.
 
The City will enter into a mandatory water curtailment stage 1 as of September 14, 2020. There are four stages of curtailment detailed in Ashland Municipal Code 14.06 with stage 4 providing the strictest consumption usage. 
 
Curtailment Stages for a typical residential customer with a .75” water meter: 
Stage 1: 3600 cubic feet per month (26,929 gallons)
Stage 2: 2500 cubic feet per month (18,701 gallons) 
Stage 3: 1800 cubic feet per month (13,464 gallons)
Stage 4: 900 cubic feet per month (6,732 gallons) 
 
We also ask residents to eliminate water waste during this time to the maximum extent feasible. 
Don’t use water to irrigate between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.
Don’t allow water to run off onto streets, sidewalks, driveways or adjacent property for more than five minutes.
Don’t use water to wash sidewalk, walkways or other hard surfaces except where necessary for public health or safety.
Don’t allow water to escape from breaks within a plumbing system. 
Don’t use water to wash cars, boats, trailers, aircraft or other vehicles by hose without using a shutoff nozzle.
Don’t serve drinking water in restaurants, hotels, cafes, or other public places unless requested by the customer. Businesses can request conserve water table tents for their businesses by calling 541-488-5587.
Don’t use water to clean, fill or maintain decorative fountains, ponds etc. unless the water is re-circulated.
Don’t use water for dust control or washing buildings.
Except for purposes of building construction, don’t use water for compaction, dust control, cleaning or wetting or washing a building (except in preparation for painting).
Don’t use water to fill swimming pools or for filling toy, play or other pools with a capacity in excess of 100 gallons.  Water may be added to swimming pools to replace volume loss due to evaporation but not more than 100 gallons. 

The City’s water conservation team is here to assist you in your efforts to use water efficiently and minimize waste.

Peak Demand for water usage typically runs between 2:00am and 9:00am

Low Demand for water usage generally runs Noon to 5:00pm and 11:00pm to 2:00am

*MGD = million gallons a day

 GPD/pp = Gallons Per Day/Per Person

The household use is based on flow data recorded at the Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP). Flows can increase or decrease based on home use, but will also show an increase with any measurable precipitation.  The TID irrigation information will be available and updated weekly between April and October once TID has started up.
