DEP Declares Drought Watch

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection has placed Bucks County under a drought watch, which encourages residents and businesses to use water wisely and take steps to conserve the water supply.

Dry conditions in central Pennsylvania and the lack of rain in our region have slowed stream flows and lowered groundwater levels. Most Solebury residents rely on groundwater wells for their water needs.

These simple steps can help us preserve our water resources during the drought watch:

  • Run water only when necessary. Avoid running the faucet while brushing your teeth or shaving, or letting the shower run for several minutes before use.
  • Check for household leaks. A leaking toilet can waste up to 200 gallons of water each day.
  • Run dishwashers and washing machines only with full loads.
  • Replace older appliances with high-efficiency, front-loading models that use about 30 percent less water and 40 to 50 percent less energy.
  • Install low-flow plumbing fixtures and aerators on faucets.

You can learn more about water conservation and stay up-to-date on drought conditions at the Pennsylvania drought information web page.
