Stage 1 – Water Conservation Alert – LIFTED

Bolivia, NC –The Stage 1 Water Conservation Alert has been lifted for all customers of Brunswick County Public Utilities.

The voluntary water conservation measures taken by water system users in Brunswick County have helped to avoid mandatory water restrictions.

Adjustment of irrigation schedules has been particularly helpful (no irrigation on Mondays and between 5 and 11 a.m.; odd-numbered addresses irrigate on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday; even-numbered addresses irrigate on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday). We encourage, but do not require, all customers to continue this irrigation schedule in the future and to use water wisely to ensure adequate water is available for essential uses and for fire protection.

Please use the suggested irrigation schedule next spring to eliminate, or postpone, the need for Water Conservation Alerts next summer.

Residents who have questions should contact their water service provider directly or Brunswick County Public Utilities at 910-253-2657.  Additional information can be found at <http://www.brunswickcountync.gov/>.
