REMINDER for Public Water Systems!  As we enter another dry summer following prior dry months, please remember the following tips:


  • Review Emergency Response Plans for drought response measures; make sure information and contact numbers are all up-to-date.


  • Check water levels in sources/wells and re-assess operational and management plans.


  • Consider repairing leaking water mains sooner rather than later.


  • Educate the public about the importance of water conservation and repairing leaky household fixtures.


  • Review Community Water Conservation Measure Triggers, Responses, and Enforcement Plans for appropriateness; revise if necessary.


  • Discuss any concerns you have with your local health department.
