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.

What You Can Do Now

  • Check your irrigation system for leaks. Fix leaking faucets and toilets.

  • Replace turf with low-water-use plants. Please click this link for information on our Water Efficient Landscapes (WEL) Rebate Program. Click here.
  • Sweep instead of using a hose to clean sidewalks, driveways, and other hard-surfaced areas.
  • Use a shut-off nozzle on your hose.
  • Only run full loads of laundry and dishes.
