County Asks Residents to Conserve Water

County officials released a press statement on Friday urging residents to be aware of water use in the coming months. According to Ed Day and County Health Commissioner Patricia Schnabel Ruppert, the rain fall in August and September was only about 30% of the average for those months, which has led to a need for water conservation tactics, such as only running water when absolutely necessary, turning off sprinklers, using the dishwasher and clothes washing machine only when they are full, and keep a pitcher of water in the fridge rather than running the faucet for cold drinking water. Dr. Schnabel Ruppert stated that the situation is not yet a crisis, but saving water is important for the future. For more conservation tips and information visit
