§ 54.16  OBJECTIVES OF RATIONING.
   (A)   It is imperative that water customers achieve an immediate further reduction in water in order to extend existing water supplies and, at the same time, assure that sufficient water is available to preserve the public health and sanitation and to provide fire protection service.
   (B)   The immediate further reduction in water usage is another step along a continuum of responses to the present water supply shortage.  Should shortages continue, further reductions in usage may be required.  It must be emphasized that the additional usage reduction in the rationed area is a valid and attainable goal reflective of the conditions which currently exist.
   (C)   The plan provides for equitable reductions in water usage and for equal sacrifice on the part of each water customer.  The success of this subchapter depends on the cooperation of all water customers in the emergency area.
