Whenever the governing body of the city finds that a potential shortage of water supply is indicated, it shall be empowered to declare by order that a water shortage advisory exists, and that the Superintendent of the Water, Gas and Sewerage Works shall, on a daily basis, monitor the supply and demands upon that supply.  In addition, the Mayor (or his/her agent) is authorized to call upon all water customers to employ voluntary water conservation measures (see § 54.19) to limit water use (especially Class 3 uses) and eliminate the waste of water.  This order shall be published in the official city newspaper, and may be publicized through the general news media or any other appropriate method for making such orders public.
