STAGE TWO WATER CURTAILMENT TERMINATED STAGE ONE WATER CURTAILMENT CONTINUES
The Newport City Council, at its meeting of September 20, terminated the Alert Stage 2 Water Curtailment restrictions that were enacted on August 4, 2021. An Alert Stage 1 Water Curtailment is still in effect until further notice, and residents and visitors are urged to conserve water.
Water conservation measures include:
● Be mindful of running water.
● Repair leaks as soon as possible.
● Avoid letting the toilet run.
● Wash (dishes and clothes) full loads only.
● Use a compost bin.
There are many other water conservation measures that can be utilized.
On June 28, 2021, the city issued notice of an Alert Stage 1 Water Curtailment. This was done in conjunction with the Lincoln County Commissioner’s declaration of a countywide drought. This was a water system advisory which informed the community of the situation and recommended voluntary water conservation.
The City of Newport thanks its residents and businesses for their cooperation.
