Citizens still urged to conserve PDF Print

Speaking of the drought, local and state officials are still urging High Country residents to conserve water, rain or no rain.

While he believes recent rainfall has greatly improved the water situation, Public Utilities Director Rick Miller is currently investigating a state report that says Boone’s supply may have reached critical levels.


Governor Mike Easley launched a campaign Monday urging every state resident to cut his or her water usage by 50 percent. By monitoring the situation when everyone is doing their best to conserve, state officials can better assess the longevity of North Carolina’s water supply. After Halloween, officials will compile a list of communities that have seen a significant difference in water use. Boone Mayor Loretta Clawson says it’s the list to be on, and has joined Easley in urging citizens to conserve.
