Drought is Here. Save Water.

On May 5, 2021, Town Council adopted a resolution calling for a voluntary 20% water use reduction Town-wide. 

Our region is in a drought after two consecutive dry winters. We are asking you to conserve water and reduce your water use by 20% when compared to this time last year.  We only received 38% of our average rainfall this winter, and our reservoirs are at low levels.
