Danbury monitoring reservoir levels amid drought conditions

With a continued lack of significant rainfall, the City of Danbury is taking steps to monitor the drought situation and mitigate problems where possible.  Public Works Director Antonio Iadarola says the  city’s reservoir system is at 72 percent capacity, down from a 100 percent capacity only back in May.  Crews are increasing their monitoring of West Lake and Margerie Lake reservoirs.  He says the trend doesn't look good, but the City is at a point in storage capacity where he feels comfortable with operations.  This week Mayor Dean Esposito put out a call for homeowners, businesses and apartment or condo complexes to not irrigate lawns and gardens.  While there are no penalties for continuing, the city warned it would be patrolling neighborhoods to monitor compliance.
