https://news.ntmwd.com/ntmwd-requests-immediate-curtailment-of-non-essential-water-use

Please follow these curtailment measures to ensure continued water services. 

Immediate curtailment measures include:

  • Isolate any water leaks immediately
  • Do not hoard water
  • Do not wash clothes or dishes, wash only when necessary
  • Delay showers and only hand-bathe when necessary
  • When possible, do not drip your faucets
    • If you must drip or stream your faucet, collect the water for other use such as filling toilets, washing dishes, etc.
  • Do not use the garbage disposal, place food scraps in garbage can, (composting is a great alternative)
  • Turn off the water to brush teeth, shave and soap up in the shower
  • Ensure that hose bibs and faucets are protected from freezing weather
  • Locate and repair any water leaks
  • When cooking, peel and clean vegetables in a large bowl instead of under running water

The District continues coordination efforts with cities and water utilities to ensure our ability to meet the water demand for essential services.
