The Catawba-Wateree Drought Management Advisory Group (CW-DMAG) has placed the Catawba-Wateree River Basin in Stage 1 of the “low inflow protocol” (LIP) due to continued hot weather and low rainfall in the region.
Even though Statesville’s Lookout Shoals intake facility is on the Catawba-Wateree River Basin, Water Resources Director Joe Hudson said the City’s ability to draw water from other sources means the Stage 1 restrictions will have no effect on Statesville water customers.

According to Hudson, Stage 1 requires all CW-DMAG members to reduce their monthly withdrawal amounts by 3 – 5%. He explained that Statesville will be able to make up this difference by using the City’s alternate intake on the South Yadkin River as well as its raw water reservoir. “We do not have to ask our customers to reduce their usage to accomplish the Stage 1 restrictions,” Hudson said.

“We always stress the importance of water conservation to our citizens,” he continued. “But because our City leaders planned for and developed more than one water source, we are able to provide an adequate water supply during the hot summer months and extreme dry seasons.”
