In Lincoln County, city leaders in Stanford are taking action to conserve water.
City leaders say their water situation is an "emergency."
They've passed a mandatory water alert on all non-essential water use. Late last night, they passed an ordinance that includes commercial car washes in the ban.
The owners of two Stanford car washes call the move unfair, and say they have bills to pay.
Water officials say they would be irresponsible if they do not take action to conserve water.
