Brunswick County rescinds Stage 1 Water Conservation Alert, encourages continued use of recommended irrigation schedule

Brunswick County Public Utilities is rescinding its Stage 1 Water Conservation Alert effective Monday, Aug. 22, 2022. This notice affects all customers of public water systems anywhere in Brunswick County. Full details at

The conservation alert was originally issued June 16, 2022. Recent rainfalls and the public’s efforts to conserve water have contributed to a drop to sustainable levels for the County’s water system.

However, if drier weather conditions return, additional alerts could be issued. Public Utilities continues to monitor its system levels and will notify residents in the event another water conservation alert is necessary.

Customers are highly encouraged to continue to use water wisely and maintain the recommended water irrigation schedule as follows:

  1. Odd address numbers: Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday
  2. Even address numbers: Wednesday/Friday/Sunday
  3. No irrigation on Mondays

Continuing to defer all non-essential water use (lawn irrigation) to outside the peak demand hours of 5 a.m. to 11 a.m., preferably after nightfall, will also help to spread out demands on the system.
