City of Emory moves to Stage 1 of Drought Contingency Plan
The City of Emory has implemented Stage 1 of our Drought Contingency Plan effective Tuesday, August 9th due to high water consumption, and consistent high temperatures over the past several weeks. This is the first of six stages that consist of (1) MILD Water Shortage Conditions, (2) MODERATE Water Shortage Conditions, (3) SEVERE Water Shortage Conditions, (4) CRITICAL Water Shortage Conditions, (5) EMERGENCY Water Shortage Conditions, and (6) WATER ALLOCATION.
Stage 1 is a voluntary reduction on the use of water. Because of our responsibility to you, we are requesting that you help us by cutting down on your water usage where you can. Try to do one thing each day to save water. Every drop counts, and every person can make a difference. Check every faucet in your home or business for leaks. Just a slow drip can waste 15 to 20 gallons a day. Fix it, and you can save almost 6,000 gallons a year. Remember to use the amount of water that you actually need. Encourage your family members to keep looking for ways to conserve water in and around your home or business.
If the city has to move into Stage 2, we will contact the Rains County Leader for publication and information will appear on the city's website and on your water bill.
