State still analyzing water conservation results PDF Print

Last month, Governor Mike Easley asked North Carolinians to try to cut their water use by as much as 50 percent by Halloween.  

72 percent of the 6.8 million customers served by public water systems responded to his call. A release from Easley’s office says that early indications, based on an analysis of information from the 25 larges systems in the state, show an average drop in daily water use of nearly 30 percent from the month of August compared to the last week of October.


Easley said today that information collected is helping identify regions and systems that must do more to save water and avoid more drastic measures.


Information for the public systems reporting can be found on line at for weekly water use, as reported by the water systems and for monthly averages.
