HAMPSTEAD – The Stage 3 Mandatory Water Restrictions II remain in effect for Pender County Utilities (PCU) customers in the Hampstead and Scotts Hill areas.

“All non-essential uses of drinking water are banned, and garden and landscape irrigation must be reduced to the minimum amount necessary for survival,” said Kenny Keel, Pender County Utilities director. “Irrigating grass lawns is banned.”

It is anticipated that these restrictions will remain in effect until at least July 8, to ensure a sufficient water supply is available for customers over the Independence Day holiday. PCU staff will re-evaluate our water shortage response at that time to determine if changes can be made.

“We appreciate the cooperation of our customers with these requirements,” said Keel. “Thank you for your efforts.”
