Voluntary Water Conservation Encouraged
Posted Date:
7/22/2015
The Town of Clover urges citizens to conserve water in response to an elevation of drought status to Stage 1 (voluntary conservation). Both residential and commercial customers are encouraged to conserve water.
The Town and Two Rivers Utilities encourages  citizens to use water responsibly and conserve where possible.  Conservation actions may include:
  • Limit watering to 2 or 3 days per week and using low volume, drop irrigation and handheld watering devices. Visit www.irrigation.org for tips and guidelines.
  • Reduce washing down of sidewalks, walkways, driveways, parking lots, and other hard surfaced areas.
  • Reduce washing down structures and buildings for purposes other than immediate fire protection or repairs.
  • Reduce residential washing of vehicles. Use car washes that use recycled water instead of washing vehicles at home.

The upgrade to Stage 1 (voluntary conservation) is due to the negative impact of the rain shortage and high temperatures.  The long-range weather forecasts and drought projections suggest a continuing deterioration of water storage in the Catawba-Wateree Basin, which may prompt a Stage 2, or mandatory restrictions, declaration sometime in August.
