Nollco to Water Consumers
I wish to call tho attention of our
water consumers to "the regulation
about shutting off sprinklers when tho
fire whistlo blows and leaving same
shut off until tho whistlo blows for
"lire Is out." It is imporatlvo that this
bo dono. Tho City mnkos few re
strictions in tho uiso of water and only
thoso which aro absolutely necessary
for tho protection of Its citizens and
thoir proporty and thoy must bo com
piled with. Thoro havo boon casos
whoro consumers havo deliberately
turnod on their sprlnklors whon tho
flro whistlo blow in order to bonoflt
by tho Increased pressure. There is
a fine for doing this and also for not
turning off sprlnklors when tho whistle.
uiows ana unioss this ordor is com
plied with tho next tinio wo havo a
flro the names of tho offenders will be
taken and tho fines assossed and the
wator turned off until tho flne3 are
paid. Tho two recent fires havo for
tunately not been largo ones but had
tho last flro (Lloyd's Opora IIouso)
been a serious ono It would havo beon
nocossary for us to havo sent autos up
and down tho streets to shut off tho
sprlnklors as thoro seomed to bo very
fow who complied with tho regulation.
You can roadily see tho reason for
this rule If you will stop to consider
that durlnc this hot wcalhor thoro aro
from GOO to 800 sprlnklors running
which takes tho wator out of tho main's
about as fnsras It Is put Into theni and
in caso of flro unioss our consumers
shut off their sprinklers it Is impos
sible to raise tho prossuro sufficiently
to give tho firemen effective fire
streams. If your house were on fire
you would naturally oxpect your
neighbors to shut off their sprinklers
to give sufficient force to put out tho
flro. I therefore ask you kindly to
consider this in tho future whon tho
flro whistlo blows and shut off your
sprinklers so It will not bo necessary
for us to enforco the penalty.
