The City is not requiring any mandatory water conservation measures but would like ideas from the community on how you can voluntarily help conserve water.  We can all do our part to lessen the effects of limited water supplies this summer.  We can start by conserving water we use today.  Check out the fact sheets link provided by the State of Oregon on how you can save water and let us know if you have other ideas to share.

The link provides information regarding:
     - Saving Water Inside the Home
     - Saving Water Outside the Home
     - Saving Water on a Farm or Ranch
     - Saving Water within Municipal Systems

Leak Detection: A good method to check for leaks is to examine your winter water usage. It's likely that a family of four has a serious leak problem if its winter water use exceeds 12,000 gallons per month.

Of course, the old idea of placing a brick inside the water tank of your bathroom toilet is a proven saver. (If the device is NOT already of Low Volume mfg.)

Alright, I'd rather say this privately, but there doesn't seem to be an option for that except a support ticket, which seems to go to Granicus rather than to anyone in Roseburg. I've had a look at the Terms and Conditions and the Privacy Policy and way too much information and access is given to Granicus, a third party provider I've never heard of and don't trust after Googling them. After that, I have just one question, how do I delete this account? That option doesn't seem to be offered, unlike any reputable social media platform. It's a nice idea, but everyone's on Facebook. Set up a page there and I'll join.
