County Issues Voluntarily Water Conservation Notice

SMITHFIELD – The Johnston County Department of Utilities has issued a Voluntary Water Conservation request asking all county water customers to conserve water during the Memorial Day Weekend.

Due to hot dry weather conditions, irrigation usage has created above normal demands on the county water system.  All residential in-ground irrigation systems and hose-end sprinklers should be suspended from use Saturday, May 25th through Monday, May 27th.

Officials are also asking customers employ voluntary water conservation measures to limit water usage around their homes throughout the holiday weekend.
