DEP Drought Warning - Public Strongly Urged to Reduce Water Use

Please be advised, Department of Environmental Protection Commission Bob Martin today placed 14 Counties encompassing in Northern, Central, and Northern Coasal areas of New Jersey under a drought warning due to ongoing precipitation deficits and deteoriating water-supply conditions, particularly storage levels in reservoirs. Please note, Borough of Bergenfield, County of Bergen, are included in the drought warning.

DEP offers the following tips to reduce water use:

  • At this time of year, it is appropriate to let your lawns go dormant.
  • Turn sprinkler systems off automatic timers.
  • Use a hose with a hand held nozzle to water flowers and shrubs, or let them go dormant.
  • Use a broom to sweep the sidewalk, rather than a hose.
  • Wash vehicles with a bucket and do not run the hose more than necessary, or use a commerical car wash that recycles water.
  • To save water at home, fix leaky faucets and pipes. Consider replacing your toilet with a low-flow version.
  • Upgrade your shower head to low-flow.
  • Upgrade your faucets or install faucet aerators.
