UW Customers Asked to Conserve Water During Dry Spell

United Water New Jersey customers are urged to conserve water during the current wave of very dry weather and refrain from outdoor water usage for the next several days. “This extended dry weather pattern is testing the limits of our supply,” said senior operations director, Tom Neilan. “With barely over 1 1/2 inches of rain in August, this is one of the driest summer months in northern New Jersey in over 90 years.” He noted that forecasts call for continued hot weather with very little rain, while the demand for water remains very high. “The New Jersey reservoirs that serve approximately 800,000 people in Bergen and Hudson counties are now at less than 50 percent capacity. We continue, however, to distribute water at a very high rate with over 3.9 billion gallons delivered this month. That is nearly 400 million gallons more than in August last year.”

Customers should restrict their water usage outdoors and conserve where possible indoors, while the unusually dry weather pattern passes. Voluntary conservation now should help reduce the potential for greater, mandatory restrictions.
