(A) A water supply shortage shall be declared to exist when the reserve water supply available to the City reaches the point where continued declines in supply may jeopardize the ability to provide citizens and businesses with water needed to protect health and safety without curtailing water demand.
(B) In determining the extent of the water shortage, the following criteria shall be considered: storage levels in City lakes, inflow from stream sources, daily water use patterns and quantities, outlook for precipitation, and availability of water from other sources.
(C) A water shortage shall also be declared to exist when production, transmission, and storage facilities are incapable of meeting all daily water demands needed to protect public safety and health.
