Pittsboro, NC - “Thanks to the recent cooperation of Mother Nature, Chatham County’s water supply sources have been replenished to the point that mandatory water usage restrictions have been lifted,” said Will Baker, director of the Chatham County Utilities Department. “We do urge residents to continue voluntary conservation efforts, because we never know when another drought may visit us.”

Jordan Lake is now back to normal levels and Siler City’s water supply source also is at capacity. “Siler City has also lifted its restrictions, which means that county customers served by Siler City’s water source also can revert to voluntary restrictions.

It is important for county water customers to continue to conserve water whenever they can, because weather patterns can change very quickly, Baker added. “In other words, we need to save up for a non-rainy day.”
