PUBLIC NOTICE – MEADE COUNTY WATER DISTRICT – CONSERVE WATER

PRESS RELEASE
Date: June 18, 2024
TO: Meade County Water District Customers
RE: We need your help to conserve water
Due to increased demand as a result of hot, dry weather, Meade County Water District (MCWD)
is struggling to keep enough water in the distribution system to keep up with our customer’s
needs. MCWD has identified and is working to complete multiple projects to get more water
into the system and improve the resiliency. These projects will take several months to
complete so we are asking our customers to help us by limiting your water usage for watering
lawns, landscapes and gardens. We understand that asking you to conserve water can be an
inconvenience and we appreciate your help.
At this point, we don’t know how long we’ll ask you to limit outdoor water usage; the weather
plays a large role in what’s happening. We’ll keep you updated on the conservation measures
and the projects to improve the amount of water we can move through our system. Please
follow us on our Facebook page for updates.
Each project is in various stages of design and will take several months to get completed. We
hope to put the first project, which is a new upsized transmission main water line from the
Flaherty water tank to the Garrett water tank, by the end of July 2024.
We are asking our customers to conserve water by not using water for yards, landscapes and
gardens.
We realize this is an inconvenience and we are working diligently to make the much-needed
system improvements.
Thank you for your understanding during these trying times.
Brett Pyles
General Manager
