TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The fountain in front of One Government Center was on Wednesday after Mayor Collins urged residents to conservewater.

Toledoans say they are doing their part and the city should too. 

"I live in an apartment building and we're all justconserving things and just doing the best we can with what we have," said resident Kevin Garrison.

The water in the fountain is recycled water but many in the communitystill think it shouldn't be on.

"We pay our taxes so they can run water, I guess. I can'twater my grass but you know, I'm just a normal everyday guy," said Ken Frey.

Frey says he feels the city running the fountain is a doublestandard and that everyone should be working to conserve for the next fewweeks.

"Obviously they're unsure about the water situation, or theywouldn't be telling us to conserve water, and to maintain what water we have inour reservoir. So if they're saying to conserve, it's for a reason, so obviouslythe problem isn't fixed," continues Frey.

Staff from the city say that the building manager of One Government Center controls the fountain and that the Mayor ordered other cityfountains and sprinklers to be turned off.

The fountain has been turned off since this morning.
