With drought conditions persisting in the State of Connecticut, and too little precipitation forecast for the foreseeable future, the City of Danbury is requesting all water customers to initiate water conservation measures and specifically reduce all non-essential water use.
Danbury reservoir levels are currently at 66% of full capacity, which is approximately 11% below normal for this time of year.
The City is asking residents to do the following:
-Refrain from use of outdoor water devices, including irrigation systems, sprinklers, soaker hoses and hand held hoses.
-Use brooms and blowers instead of water to clean decks, driveways and sidewalks.
-Repair leaks in plumbing and fixtures (repair leaky toilets and faucets)
-Run only full loads in the clothes washing machine and in the dishwasher.
-Take shorter showers.
-Do not leave water running while washing hands, shaving or brushing teeth.
-Install low-flow toilets as well as faucet and shower-head flow restrictors
