Effective Immediately Benton City Water Supply Corporation is now in STAGE III MANDATORY WATER RESTRICTIONS. BCWSC is following this in accordance with our Drought Contingency Plan. The area is still in a severe drought with long-term predictions from the National Weather Service. We strongly encourage customers to follow all water conservation measures. Important Key Points Strongly Encouraged for Mandatory Restrictions:
The meters that end with even numbers (or zero) are to water on even days, and the members with odd numbers will water on odd days of the month. Irrigation of landscaped areas is further limited to the hours of 6 a.m.–10 a.m., and 8 p.m.–10 p.m. on designated watering days. However, irrigation of landscaped areas is permitted at anytime if it is by means of a hand-held hose, a faucet-filled bucket or watering can of five (5) gallons or less, or drip irrigation system.
The following uses of water are defined as nonessential and are prohibited:
• use of water to wash down buildings or structures for purposes other than immediate fire protection;
• use of water for dust control;
• flushing gutters or permitting water to run or accumulate in any gutter or street;
• failure to repair a controllable leak(s) within a reasonable period after having been given notice directing the repair of such leak(s); and
• wash down of any sidewalks, walkways, driveways, parking lots, tennis courts, or other hard-surfaced areas;
• any waste of water.

1.Restricted Hours: Outside watering is allowed daily, but only during periods specifically described in the member notice; between 6 - 10 a.m., and 10 - 12p.m. weekdays.
2.Restricted Days/Hours: Water members are requested to voluntarily limit the irrigation of landscaped areas with hose-end sprinklers or automatic irrigation systems. Members are requested to limit outdoor water use to 6 - 10 a.m., and 10 - 12 p.m. weekdays. The meters that end with even numbers (or zero) are to water on even days, and the members with odd numbers will water on odd days of the month with no watering on weekends. However, irrigation of landscaped areas is permitted at anytime if it is by means of a hand-held hose, a faucet-filled bucket or watering can of five (5) gallons or less, or drip irrigation system.

Please Note: We schedule monthly maintenance throughout the system, however due to an increase in main line breaks we have had to increase our routine flushings. During these times you will experience low pressure and dirty water. We ask for your cooperation during these times. We have an on-call technician available 24 hours a day. Please call the office with any concerns.
