The City of Hendersonville is asking residents to cut back on their use of water due to the on-going drought conditions throughout most of North Carolina.
According to the City of Hendersonville Water Department, the city is experiencing lower than normal levels in their water supply.
The city encourages people to conserve water by doing the following:
(1) Limit car washing to a minimum;

(3) Do not wash down outside areas such as sidewalks, patios, parking lots, service bays, aprons, etc.;
(4) Do not leave faucets running while shaving or rinsing dishes;
(5) Water shrubbery to the minimum required, reusing household water when possible;
(6) Limit use of clothes washers and dishwashers, and when used, operate fully loaded;
(7) Use showers for bathing rather than bathtub and limit showers to no more than four minutes;
(8) Limit flushing of toilets by multiple usage;
(9) The use of disposable and biodegradable dishes is encouraged;
(10) The use of flow restrictive and water saving devices;
(11) Limit hours of operation of water-cooled air conditioners;
