Communities heed Governor’s call PDF Print
Wednesday, 17 October 2007 20:28

Communities statewide are heeding Governor Mike Easley’s call to increase their efforts to conserve water in the face of an unprecedented drought.


Easley says the cooperation has been tremendous, but that he may have to ask citizens to do a little bit more.

Yesterday, Easley met with officials from the Department of Crime Control and Public Safety, including the National Guard and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, to discuss the state’s plans for water conservation and ensure local communities are cooperating with their public water systems.

The meeting came days after Easley stopped just short of imposing statewide water rationing, asking people to stop watering lawns and washing cars. Several of the state’s largest cities have responded by enacting tighter restrictions on outdoor water use. Water reservoirs are drying up statewide, and water officials are already worried about possible shortages next summer.
