Drought Watch Requires Water-saving Measures

October 3, 2007

Due to the lack of rain, a drought watch issued at the end of August still remains in effect. It will take several soaking rains over the period of a few weeks before the watch can be lifted. As a result of these drought conditions, the UNH/Durham Water Supply is urging the university community to conserve water.

Conservation measures include:

Fixing leaky pipes, faucets, and toilets: call Maintenance Control at 2-1437 to report leaks.

Run the dishwasher only where it’s full; same for the washing machine.

Take shorter showers.

Shut the water off while brushing your teeth.

Don’t leave faucets running when not needed.

Use automatic car washes.

Put a bottle of water in the refrigerator instead of running the water until it gets cold.

We welcome your story ideas, letters, photos, notable events, achievements, obituaries and/or memorium.

Deadline for submissions is Tuesdays at 4 pm.
