Riverton City's secondary water system will be fully operational and ready for general use in all areas of the city beginning May 1.

Residents are asked to not use secondary water until May 1, even though there might be water in the line at their home. The secondary water system needs to be completely full across all zones in the city for it to be fully pressurized, and any use prior to May 1 will make full pressurization more difficult to achieve.

Given the wet spring, it's likely lawns won't need water until mid-May.
