Redding asks for water conservation

The city of Redding is asking residents to voluntary conserve water as much as possible to help reduce demand on its citywide supply.

The Motion Fire northwest of Redding has crept closer to the city’s Buckeye Water Treatment Plant near Rock Creek Road, west of the city. Should the plant be required to shut down as a precaution, conservation would ease demand on municipal water supplies. Fire crews are stationed at the plant to protect it in the event the fire comes closer.

The Buckeye Plant serves much of the northwest quadrant of the city. However, even if it should have to be taken off line, other city sources would provide sufficient water to meet all residents’ requirements, said Greg Norby, Redding water utility manager.
