The City of Belmont, in collaboration with local authorities and water management agencies, have officially declared Stage1 drought conditions within our community. This measure is a proactive response to the current water supply conditions in the Catawba River basin in our area and serves as a call to action for residents and businesses to conserve water resources.
Stage 1 Drought Conditions are declared when water supply levels fall below the optimal range. While our city’s water reservoirs are not in a critical state, it is essential for all residents to be aware of the situation and make efforts to reduce water usage. The goal of these measures is to ensure the long-term sustainability of our water supply and to prevent more severe water restrictions in the future.
Under Stage 1 Drought Conditions, the following voluntary water conservation measures are encouraged:
It is essential for all residents, businesses, and community organizations to participate in these voluntary measures to help conserve our precious water resources. We will continue to monitor the water supply situation and provide updates as needed. Additional restrictions may be implemented if the situation worsens, but your cooperation in adhering to Stage 1 measures will help mitigate the need for more severe actions.
We appreciate your cooperation and responsible water usage during this Stage 1 Drought Condition declaration. By working together, we can ensure a sustainable water supply for our future.
Thank you for helping make every drop of water count!
