(KSL News) Park City residents need to "Slow the Flow" because the city is in a stage-one drought. That means people are using 85 percent of the available water.

Officials say there will be no more warnings. They'll now cite people who disobey the city's watering ordinance, which requires residents to water their lawn only every other day.

They say a stage-two drought is very possible, at which point any outside watering could be banned.

The city also has a list of recommended ways to preserve water, such as limiting both car washes and the filling of swimming pools.
