Water Restriction Guidelines

Water Management Plan

The purpose of this Plan is to keep water use within pumping capacity and delivery capability based on recommendations of the Lincoln Water System, define procedures to be used when the above criteria cannot be met and familiarize citizens, businesses and industry with procedures which may be implemented when voluntary or mandatory water restrictions are required.

Water Shortage Rates

Water Shortage Rates replace the Water Use Charges at the time a shortage is declared in conjunction with the implementation of the City's Water Management Plan.

Daily Water Use and River Flow

Water Management Plan phases are determined, in part, by the volume of water used and the amount of flow in the Platte river. During the summer months (May–September), these totals are updated daily (M–F).
