Under these measures, residents are not permitted to fill swimming pools, wash cars, wash side walks or other hard surfaces.
The SCWA says a $100 fine will be issued for the first offense and a $500 fine for the second offense. Customers will be disconnected after a third offense.
The association cites drought conditions leading to "excessively high water usage" as the cause for implementing conservation measures.
The SCWA covers rural areas of Eastern Muskogee County to the Arkansas State Line.
