Caldwell County Issues Emergency Drought Declaration
The Caldwell County Commissioners issued an Emergency Drought Order Declaration. The Commissioners are asking Caldwell County citizens for a voluntary reduction of water usage. Citizens are reminded that while household, livestock and personal water usage is permitted, outdoor water usage including yard and garden needs to be voluntary reduced or eliminated.
Citizens who live in a local jurisdiction with mandatory water restrictions already in place need to follow those restrictions.
Additionally, County citizens are reminded due to ongoing extremely dry condition and high fire dangers the County-wide outdoor burn ban remains in effect until further notice.
