Kirkwood, MO (KSDK) - The City of Kirkwood is urging residents to refrain from watering outdoor lawns and gardens during the heat wave.
It is critical for public safety that the water storage tanks stay full for firefighting needs.
Additionally, some residents may see lower water pressure and high-than-normal water bills if outdoor watering continues.
The City of Kirkwood has reduced its own municipal use of water for general irrigation, and any new tree or landscape planting has been postponed.
Water use and demand will be closely monitored each day by city officials.
