Q: Why aren't town water restrictions on a per-usage basis instead of the alternate days to water?
A: "Water restrictions are on an alternate day basis for simplicity and equity reasons," wrote Public Works Director, Buzz Walker, in a fax to the Payson Roundup newspaper. "Imagine trying to enforce water use regulations in a timely manner if we had to factor in different variables for each customer. Water conservation is good for all, regardless of the amount of water use of each customer. Our customers expect us to enforce the rules quickly and in an equitable manner for all water users."
