Posted Date:
The Town of Aberdeen has ordered voluntary water conservation measures due to cooperation with neighboring water systems request for conservation and potential needs.

 This is Stage 1 of the Town of Aberdeen’s water conservation plan, and it includes the following:

• Use shower for bathing purposes or reduce the depth of water used for tub baths. Limit showers to five (5) minutes where possible,
• Refrain from running faucets while shaving, rinsing dishes or brushing teeth,
• Install water flow restrictive devices on showerheads,
• Install water-saving devices such as plastic bottles or commercial units in toilet tanks,
• Review water uses and where feasible install recycle systems, particularly commercial and industrial customers,
• Limit the use of clothes washers and dishwashers and when used, operate fully loaded,
• Reduce the flushing of toilets to the minimum whenever practical,
• Limit lawn watering to only when grass shows signs of withering and apply water as slow as possible to achieve deep penetration,
• Limit shrubbery watering to the minimum, reusing household water when possible,
• Limit car washing to the minimum,
• Limit wash downs of outside areas such as sidewalks, patios, driveways, or other similar purposes,
