Stagnant Water Notice 

Owners or superintendents/property managers of temporarily or partially closed businesses and other public facilities, such as churches and schools, please be aware that water held unused in building pipes will become stagnant, potentially leading to to an increased risk for the growth and spread of water-borne bacteria, such as Legionella or biofilm. Stagnant water can also lead to low or undetectable levels of disinfectant, such as chlorine.

The CDC recommends eight steps to ensure water is safe to drink, as well as taste- and odor-free, before reopening your building or facility.

Ways To Conserve Water

Town of Leland asks that you use water wisely. By following the recommendations outlined below, you may reduce the amount of water use.

Reduce Irrigation Frequency

For established lawns, daily irrigation is not required. Irrigate only when there is no moisture in the root zone

Irrigate During Off-peak Hours

Peak demand for water is between 5:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. If irrigation is necessary, irrigate during off peak times. This will help to ensure proper water pressure for more efficient irrigating.
