  • 2007: The City of Clemson is asking for voluntary water conservation measures throughout our system. While we still have a more than adequate water level above the low water intake at our treatment plant on Lake Hartwell, the Utilities Department is asking consumers to use water wisely before the situation becomes critical. The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources has declared an extreme drought in our area of the state and the Utilities Department feels all water providers should cooperate with statewide efforts to conserve water. We urge our customers to help us avoid a more serious situation by voluntarily curtailing non essential water use and by using water wisely. Suggestions for saving water include:
  • Verify your home is leak free. Check your meter when no water is being used, if the meter is turning check your toilets, faucets, etc. for leaks.
  • Take shorter showers and replace shower heads with low flow models.
  • Operate dishwashers and clothes washers only when they are full.
  • Don’t let water run while shaving, washing your face or brushing your teeth.
  • Water lawns early in the morning only every 5 to 7 days. Don’t over water your lawn, and set sprinklers so they water only your vegetation, not driveways and streets. It will be beneficial if the even number houses water on even numbered days of the month and that odd numbered houses water on odd numbered days of the month.
  • Use a broom instead of water to remove debris from sidewalks and driveways.
  • 2007: The Clemson Players present "Jane Eyre" in the Bellamy Theatre of the Brooks Center at 8 p.m. Tix are $10 for adults, $5 for students, general seating.
