Leland Lifts Voluntary Water Conservation Alert

The Stage 1 Water Conservation Alert has been lifted for all customers of Brunswick County Public Utilities, including the Town of Leland.

In accordance with its Water Shortage Response Plan and in keeping with Brunswick County’s Water Emergency Ordinance, the Town of Leland first issued a declaration of an immediate water shortage and implemented voluntary conservation measures for customers in late May. The Town adopted and extended its Stage 1 Water Conservation Alert throughout the summer months to help the County ensure adequate water was available for essential needs.

The County determined earlier today that the voluntary water conservation measures taken by water system users in Brunswick County have helped to avoid mandatory water restrictions.

Adjustment of irrigation schedules has been particularly helpful in conserving water. That schedule is as follows:

  • No irrigation on Mondays
  • No irrigation between 5 and 11 a.m.
  • Odd-numbered addresses irrigate on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday
  • Even-numbered addresses irrigate on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday

Residents are encouraged, but not required, to continue this irrigation schedule in the future and use water wisely to ensure an adequate supply for essential uses, as well as for fire protection. Residents should also use the suggested irrigation schedule in the spring to eliminate or postpone the need for Water Conservation Alerts next summer.

Residents who have questions may contact their water service provider directly or Brunswick County Public Utilities at (910) 253-2657. Additional information can be found at www.brunswickcountync.gov
