Gretna Nebraska - City of Gretna Voluntary Water Conservation 05 August 2022 ( news )
Gretna , state Nebraska ( By Press Release office)

With the continuing heat and dry weather patterns , the wells that provide water throughout the City of Gretna system are struggling to keep up with demand . Increased demand stresses the entire system as evidenced by recent water main breaks . In order to protect the system and continue to provide water to our customers we ask for voluntary watering on alternate days as follows:
If your address ends with an odd number ( 1 , 3 , 5 , 7 , 9 ) , water on Monday , Wednesday and/or Friday .
&nb......sp;If your address ends with an even number ( 2 , 4 , 6 , 8 , 0 ) , water on Tuesday , Thursday and/or Saturday or Sunday .
Did you know early morning watering this time of year can impact water pressure? Although the City has adequate water supplies , we do see very high demands and some pressure loss in our system in the early morning hours when customers irrigate their lawns .
You can help reduce peak demands and maintain more optimum pressures in the system by switching up your sprinkler schedule .
