Drought Watch

Ways to Reduce Consumption 

Please be aware that a drought declaration was issued for Luzerne County by the Department of Environmental Protection. Declarations are issued in response to low stream flows, declining groundwater levels, and below-normal precipitation rates. When in a drought watch, it is recommended that consumers reduce their water use by about 5% through voluntary conservation measures. Remember, small changes can add up to huge results, including a lesser water bill!

For more information, we encourage you to visit the Department’s Drought Information page where updates are posted regularly to keep consumers informed of emerging conditions. The website also provides links to information that is useful for monitoring conditions in your area.
