Drought continues, Governor says conserve PDF Print
Wednesday, 12 December 2007 22:23

Governor Mike Easley could cap water use in some towns and cities if the stateide drought worsens.

Yesterday, Easley said he doesn’t believe he’ll have to go that far- as long as conservation and cooperation continues. Easley has 13 months left in office- and hopes he can use that time to continue to urge residents to expand conservation efforts. If efforts come up short, Easley will use his emergency powers to place a limit on the daily amount of water some communities could use. Once the set amount was reached, the system’s spigot would be turned off. Easley hopes residents will heed the warning and conserve so such measures can be avoided.
