​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Drought Central​

The Catawba-Wateree Drought Management Advisory Group (CW-DMAG) announced that dry weather conditions and warm temperatures have placed the Catawba-Wateree River Basin, which includes Charlotte Water customers in Stage 1 of the Low Inflow Protocol (LIP).  Stage 1 is the second of five drought stages outlined in the LIP and recommends voluntary water conservation by water users across the Basin, including Charlotte Water customers. 

Charlotte Water joins the other 40+ members of the DMAG in asking customers to

  •  Please only irrigate on Tuesdays and Saturdays between 6pm—6am if you must irrigate
  •  Limit landscape watering of no more than one inch of water per week, this includes rain
  •  Please conserve all water use indoors and outdoors
  •  Please refrain from outdoor water use during the day (6am to 6pm) to reduce evaporation losses
  •  Please refrain from filling pools
  •  Only top off swimming pools on Thursday and Sundays, between 6pm - 6am
  •  Please discontinue operation of fountains and other ornamental water features that do not sustain aquatic animal life
