Challenge yourself to conserve PDF Print
Tuesday, 23 October 2007 20:50

Both local and state lawmakers are asking residents to conserve water- and there are several ways you can help. By stopping landscape watering and other unnecessary outdoor uses, Governor Mike Easley says citizens can show their commitment to the future of their communities. Easley also encourages residents to take shorter showers, flush toilets less, turn water off when brushing teeth, and limit clothes and dishwashing to full loads. Restaurants should avoid serving water unless it’s ordered, and both residents and commercial businesses are asked to limit or cease washing vehicles. State officials are closely monitoring water levels to see if conservation methods make a difference in the next week. If not, North Carolina’s water supply could be threatened- and more drastic measures may be taken.
