Water, water, everywhere
With above average rainfall for the month of October, reservoir levels are on the rise. Tuesday, October 29, reservoir levels stood at 74.1 percentup 22 percent from October 11, when levels dipped to a frightening 52.1 percent. But city spokesman Maurice Jones cautions that the rising levels shouldn't lessen community vigilance yet: "It's very encouraging, but we've still got a ways to go before we can breathe easier," Jones says. Restrictions will be lifted when the reservoirs reach 85 percent and maintain that level for seven days.
