Hays works to conserve water

HAYS, Kan. (AP) — The Hays City Commission has taken steps to increase water conservation measures for residents and businesses.

The Hays Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/1fyPa9n ) commissioners unanimously approved resolutions Thursday to make plumbing more efficient in future construction and remodels.

The resolutions the commission approved would also update the municipal water conservation plan and drought response plan and revise irrigation regulations. Commercial properties building new irrigation systems have to have 30 percent of their land xeriscaped, which is landscaping that uses vegetation that requires little water.

New business customers using permanent irrigation systems will also need to install irrigation meters.
