Staff photo Tarleton to present water usage up by skip Nichols during Spring and Early summer this year watering lawns was the last thing on most people s minds. In fact with 18.38 inches of rainfall being received in tin Stephenville area during april May june and july keeping the grass from growing seemed to be the main problem for the Homeowner. But. The Texas summer finally arrived and it appears this dry weather is about to catch up with Stephenville residents. According to City water and sewer superintendent Danny Johnson a noticeable increase in water consumption has taken place since tile beginning of August. For sixteen out of the first Twenty Days of this month the City of Stephenville water Wells have pumped in excess of three million Gallons of water per Day. At plus time last year the City Wells Lead pumped Over three million Gallons of water on Only five of the first Twenty Days in August. Total consumption of water for August 1975, was 72,948.000 Gallons. Prior to this month however water usage in the City was considerably lower than in the corresponding months of 1975. In june 1975, Stephenville used 68.119.000 Gallons of water compared to 55.109.000 Gallons during june 1976. Total consumption in july 1975, was a whopping 83.781.000 Gallons while Stephenville use just 62,867,000 Gallons of water during the month of july 1976. But. A c ording to Johnson water usage Iii 1974 was the highest recorded for the City of Stephenville. In explaining the sudden surge in water usage Johnson said a we usually have some Ca ires by this time in August which Tower our Joinson also noted a your Peak time of pumping is Between 5 00 . And 10 00 ., which is three to four times greater than any other time of the there Are slightly Over 4,000 water connections in Stephenville and using an average of 2.5 persons per connection that figures to be about 10,000 people that demand water daily. Add the recent mini Boom in population and Industry and it is easy to see that the number of water users will climb accordingly. Recently Texas cities have been with a critical water shortage resulting in water rationing and even forcing some families to buy bottled water. Despite the increased water usage there is very Little Chance Stephenville citizens will run Short of the precious liquid. At present the City has Twenty two water Wells and three pumping stations with a 4,500,000 gallon capacity per Day. In addition several new water Wells for the City Are in the process of being drilled and this added Supply will continue to ensure ample water for Stephenville. So As Long As Ute dry weather c continues it appears Stephenville May make August 1976, one of the most consumptive months Ever As far As water is concerned. Hut thanks to an ample water Supply proper Long Range planning and a department which maintains the equipment necessary to deliver the water to our Homes local residents can continue to water their lawns. Of course that does t mean they appreciate some of the wet stuff from the skies it s just Nice to know that the water is always there when you want it.
