Following discussions with South Florida Water Management District officials and an evaluation of the city’s water system Mayor Lois Frankel supports continuation of the limited phase three restrictions for the City of West Palm Beach.

Mayor Frankel would like to ease restrictions in the future but feels additional time is needed to protect capacity. “While some of our water levels have significantly increased other areas are still drought stricken. At this time I feel it would be prudent to allow additional time for water to fill reserve areas that can give us an additional buffer during dry periods.”
