Water Restrictions...

Hat tip to Ross.

Archdale Water Restrictions:


Yesterday, Governor Mike Easley called for mandatory water restrictions. Citizens are to stop using water for any purpose that is not essential to public health and safety so that communities can save their dwindling water supplies and avoid more stringent restrictions. The drought across much of the state is the worst in recorded history. With a winter forecast of drier than normal conditions.

The mandate is as follows:
  • Stop watering lawns and shrubbery at homes and businesses.
  • Do not wash down houses, driveways or sidewalks.
  • Do not wash cars.
  • Restaurants should ONLY serve water upon request.

The Governor also announced that, effective immediately, there is a statewide ban on all public burning.
