The Tega Cay Utility Department is requesting all customers voluntarily reduce their external water usage. This includes reducing: irrigation time limits, washing of vehicles/boats, watering flowers/plants and pressure washing activities. Due to the current high demand and lack of rainfall, it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep elevated tank levels at a safe storage capacity. Low tank levels will reduce water pressure inside customers’ homes or place of business and will reduce hydrant flows necessary for fire suppression. Your cooperation will potentially reduce the chance of mandatory restrictions in the coming weeks.
Here are some ways in which you can reduce water usage:
These reductions are currently voluntary. Please be advised mandatory restrictions could be set in place within the next coming weeks. We will provide updates as necessary.
