Mandatory water conservation measures are now in place in Warrenton and Truesdale.
The mayors from both cities signed proclamations instituting the mandatory measures Thursday morning, July 5.
Earlier this week, both cities asked residents to reduce their water usage on a voluntary basis, but officials determined further steps needed to be taken to ensure enough water was available for essential needs.
Some of the actions that are prohibited include watering lawns, washing vehicles, machinery or other equipment or outdoor surfaces, and filling swimming pools.
Warrenton city officials also have closed the city pool and the coin-operated bulk water station on Ashland Avenue. Officials also are no longer operating the booster station located in the south end of town, which will reduce the water pressure for some area.
Voluntary water conservation measures remain in place for Wright City. No conservation measures have to be taken in Marthasville.
