Local Governments Lift Voluntary Water Conservation Measures
The local governments of the city of Richmond, Hanover, Henrico, Chesterfield, Goochland and Powhatan Counties are lifting voluntary conservation measures within their respective areas, effective immediately. Recent rainfall have increased water levels in the James River to exceed the trigger point for voluntary conservation measures. The city of Richmond measures river flow levels on a 14 day rolling average. In accordance with Richmond’s James River Regional Flow Management Plan, when river levels exceed the voluntary trigger point at the Westham Gauge for more than the prescribed 14 days, voluntary conservation measures may be lifted.
Participating localities continue to encourage customers to use water wisely, by conserving and re-using water where possible.
