| | Are you STILL using water wisely? Douglas County remains in a Level 2 Drought Designation!
The State has placed Douglas County in a Level 2 Drought Designation and that brings restrictions with it - no washing cars in your driveway; no pressure washing your house or driveway; and even/odd street address watering of your lawn! Check our web site for all the rules & regulations to help us conserve water and keep you out of trouble!
Awareness of this is very important now that warmer weather is here. Make sure you are being a good steward of our water resources and practicing conservation during your summer time activities.
