He said the usage include 141 businesses, 4 industries and 1,254 residents totaling 1,399 connections. He said the EPD said the reservoir has enough water for a 90 day supply based on a 1,000,000/day usage. In essense, since we only use half that amount, we have a 180 day sup- ply, even if it doesn&apos;t rain at all, Sprayberry stated. He said the city uses 40,000 gallons a day for backwashing the system. City manager David Aldrich said the city is minimizing the water usage as much as possi- ble. "The state still has the ban," he said. "As long as they limit the water usage, we can't lift our ban either." he added the state is trying to preserve aquatic life in the streams and lakes, also. Aldrich said the citizens still need to remember there is no outdoor watering between 4 p.m. and 10 p.m. Daffy and the use of automated equipment such as sprinklers are prohib- ited. The odd and even days sys- tem corresponding with addresses is in effect for out- door usage, Aldrich said. 000kwood omes 2450 Victory Dr., Columbus (706) 687-5100 EVERYBODY'S TALKIN' ABOUT OAK- WOOD HOME'S REPO PROGRAM Have a job?
