County seeks voluntary water conservation

The Henrico County Department of Public Utilities (DPU) is asking its customers to voluntarily limit water use in light of the ongoing drought.

Customers are requested to minimize lawn and landscape irrigation, vehicle washing and other nonessential uses. In a report Tuesday, Dec. 11, the Virginia Department of Environment Quality (DEQ) warned of a significant drought in the area including Henrico.

Precipitation has totaled less than 55 percent of the normal amount since Oct. 1, according to DEQ. As a result, the water level in the James River has fallen.

DPU will issue announcements in the future as drought conditions change. DPU has about 93,000 customers in Henrico and sells water to Hanover and Goochland counties.
