Amarillo is in the fourth year of drought conditions, yet residents continue to exceed city water usage goals. During the month of April, there have only been three days when water use was below the goal of about 44 million gallons. This past Monday, residents used almost 60 million gallons according to the Amarillo Globe-News.
The City Council is considering making regulations stricter, but City Attorney Marcus Norris is unsure the ordinance is legal or enforceable.
A public hearing will be held before the council votes on the proposed changes.
