10/9/19 – Due to the lack of rainfall and The North Carolina Drought Management Advisory Council placing our area on a D1 classification notice (Moderate Drought), the Town of Tryon would like to ask all water customers to voluntarily conserve water.

You can help in the conservation effort by adhering to some of the measures below.

• Limit car washing.
• Limit lawn and garden watering to that which is necessary for plants to survive.
• Avoid washing outside areas such as sidewalks, patios, parking lots, and service bays.
• Avoid leaving faucets running while shaving or rinsing dishes.
• Limit use of clothes washers and dish washers and ensure that all cycles are fully loaded.
• Utilize showers instead of bathtubs when possible for bathing. Limiting showers to no more than four minutes will also help conserve water.
• Limit flushing of toilets when possible.
• Use disposable and biodegradable dishes when possible.
• Use flow-restrictive and water-saving devices.
• Limit hours of operation of water-cooled air conditioners.
• All residents, businesses, and institutions should delay new landscape work until the water shortage has ended.
