UPDATE: H2GO Issues Stage 2 Water Conservation Alert

UPDATE: H2GO Issues Stage 2 Water Conservation Alert

UPDATE: June 27, 2024 -- Effective July 1, and until further notice, H2GO’s Water Conservation Alert will move to Stage 2 and apply to spray irrigation systems. Full details are available on H2GO's website.

The conservation alert was originally issued on June 19. The public’s efforts to conserve water have contributed to a drop to sustainable levels for the water system.

Use the following permitted irrigation schedule:

  1. Odd address numbers: Tuesday/Saturday
  2. Even address numbers: Wednesday/Sunday
  3. Irrigation is permitted only between 8 p.m. to 8 a.m.
  4. No irrigation on Monday/Thursday/Friday

Irrigation controls should be adjusted for an application rate of no more than ½” of water per irrigation day – less if weekly rainfall helps to reduce supplemental irrigation. Rain and soil moisture sensors will help to reduce unnecessary irrigation.

ORIGINAL STORY: June 19, 2024 -- Brunswick Regional Water & Sewer H2GO has issued a Stage 4 Water Shortage Alert. Excessive customer irrigation has continued to increase over the past several weeks putting the water system at capacity and threatening the integrity of water supply wells. 

Effective immediately, and until further notice, all irrigation is prohibited. All non-essential water use is prohibited. Non-compliance may result in civil penalties. 

The purpose of this alert is to maintain and protect the public health, safety, and welfare of H2GO customers by establishing short and long-term conservation strategies to effectively manage H2GO’s water resource supplies. 

H2GO will evaluate daily water demands, system capacities, water supply well recovery rates, and precipitation to determine sustainable customer usage and possible easing of irrigation restrictions. 

Please visit H2GO’s website for water conservation measures, and to view voluntary and mandatory water restrictions prescribed by H2GO’s Water Shortage Response Plan.
