2023-08-26 — With the current drought level at 5/5 and weather conditions signaling below-average precipitation, it is time for us to unite and conserve water.
In 2019, our community’s water usage exceeded the national average by 402% per capita. While water is essential, excessive usage has a significant impact on our environment and resources. Part of the reason for the Level 5 drought condition is the health of our aquifers. Some of our local wells are starting to go dry.
Our Commitment to Water Conservation
The District of Clearwater is taking measures to conserve water. Some examples of operations being done to conserve water include adjusting the water timers at the splash park, changing watering schedules for district-owned properties, public works detecting and fixing water leaks, and the fire department using water-conscious training methods.
