Minden is under a water reduction schedule to help preserve it's most precious resource. Mayor Bill Robertson says there's a problem, but it's not with a lack of water. "Problem that we have potentially is keeping up with the pumping of the wells, if everybody uses all the water at one time," said Mayor Robertson. The Mayor's conservation request is as simple as which side of the street a person may live. Odd number homes can water on Wednesday's, Friday's and Sunday's and even number homes can water on Tuesday's, Thursday's and Saturday's. Mayor Robertson says this is an effort to prevent a major problem later. "If our water tanks gets too low we'll have to go to a boil order and we don't want to do that," said Mayor Robertson. Right now there's no watering on Mondays in order to allow the water supply to replenish the tanks. The Mayor says the conservation effort is especially helpful to deal with fire emergencies. He says right now the public is cooperating fully with the voluntary mandate and they hope they they don't have to make it mandatory to save water.
