"What is the State of Our Local Water Supply?"


Thursday, January 24, 2008 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm


Chapel Hill Town Hall
The OWASA Board has called a public forum on Thursday night, January 24th, regarding “The State of Our Local Water Supply” to inform the public and receive customers’ questions and feedback concerning about:
  • Local water supply and demand and weather forecasts for coming months;
  • Short and long-term financial implications and strategies for the drought;
  • The options, costs and timetable for addressing the “Worst Case” drought scenario (no rainfall for many months); and
  • Proposed changes in OWASA’s water conservation standards and parallel local water conservation ordinances to further limit outdoor irrigation in Stage Two and Stage Three water shortages. (Stage Two restrictions are now in effect.) The proposed changes would generally prohibit irrigation with hand-held hoses, soaker hoses, drip irrigation and micro-spray systems in Stage Two and all irrigation with OWASA drinking water would be prohibited in Stage Three.
