Owners and operators of significant water withdrawal facilities are receiving letters notifying that water use should be cutback by 10 to 15 percent to help conserve.
State law defines a significant water withdrawal facility (SWWF) as one capable of withdrawing 100,000 gallons of water per day from all sources—ground water, surface water, or a combination of the two.
The warning is meant to initiate voluntary conservation measures in an effort to avoid or reduce shortages, relieve stressed water sources and stall the need for mandatory water use restrictions.
Although the Water Shortage Warning is directed at SWWFs, all Hoosiers are encouraged to conserve water and energy use. Conserving energy helps conserve water. Taking voluntary actions now will help later if conditions worsen.
