Drought Watch Declared for Region

The Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments has declared a drought watch for the region. Residents and businesses are being asked to help conserve water.

Ways you can help:

  • Limiting the watering of lawns, plants and shrubs
  • Using a broom instead of a hose to clean sidewalks and driveways
  • Using a commercial car wash that recycles water
  • Repairing leaking toilets and faucets
  • Reducing shower length to under 5 minutes
  • Turning off water while brushing your teeth
  • Washing full loads in dish and clothes washers

The forecast shows lots of sun over the next week. Only one day has even a possibility of rain.
