Chesterfield County Asks Customers to Conserve Water in Response to Regional Request

June 25, 2012

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA—In response to a request by the Appomattox River Water Authority, the Chesterfield County Department of Utilities is asking its customers to voluntarily conserve water by: 

  • Avoiding lawn watering on Mondays, and then following a lawn-watering schedule of alternating days based on street address. For example, addresses ending with even numbers and locations with no street numbers water on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, and addresses ending with odd numbers water on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. 
  • Limiting the filling and replenishing of swimming pools to levels needed to maintain health and safety. 
  • Limiting noncommercial vehicle washing to two days per week. 
  • Irrigating golf courses between 8 p.m. and 10 a.m.

Chesterfield County is a member of the Appomattox River Water Authority, which provides water from Lake Chesdin. The water level in Lake Chesdin has now decreased to an established level to trigger voluntary water restrictions. If significant rainfall occurs, further water-conservation measures may not be necessary.

A complete list of voluntary water-conservation measures is available online at www.chesterfield.gov/utilities . For more information, contact the Department of Utilities at 804-748-1291.
