RIO DELL- Residents living in Rio Dell will not have to face fines for going over their daily allowance of water of 50 gallons a day per person.

The City Council was considering imposing fines, but have decided not to. Since the Stage 3 Emergency plan was enacted by the city, they've seen a 50 percent reduction in water usage.

The council said there was no need to impose the fines because so many people were in compliance with the daily limit. The council will hold off on fining residents unless they see the average amount of water use go up.

However, under the plan residents can receive penalties for over watering. Like watering their lawn or garden, washing their cars, or filling up pools or hot tubs. Those fines can be up to $500.
