EL PASO - Starting Monday, El Pasoans are urged to conserve water.

That plus the rising temperatures outside is the cause for EPWU to ask for your help in conserving water for at least the next two weeks.
Everyone is being asked to only water their lawns once a week, take shorter showers, fix any leaks in homes or businesses and only run appliances like dishwashers when there's a full load.
