Because of the drought, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources is asking that we reduce water use by 10 to 15 percent. Vanderburgh County is one of 32 counties that covered by the voluntary conservation request.

The Evansville Water and Sewer Utility suggests several ways to conserve water including: not leaving faucets running, taking shorter showers, washing only full loads of laundry and scraping rather than rinsing dishes before loading into dishwashers.
