PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - Prescott developments seeking alternative water will have to wait until at least February 2016 as the City Council is no longer accepting applications.

The Prescott Daily Courier reports (http://bit.ly/1MDuWiN ) that on Tuesday the council approved a 90-day suspension of new applications in an effort to give the city time to develop a plan for dealing with its dwindling alternative-water supply

Alternative water is water that comes from non-groundwater sources such as the recharge into the aquifer of surface water withdrawn from lakes, and the recharge of treated effluent or wastewater.

Prescott Water Resources Manager Leslie Graser says requests for alternative water have far exceeded the 100 acre-feet the council had allocated for 2015.
