There is currently a Drought Warning for Snyder County and many other counties in the State of Pennsylvania which is due to “low stream flows, declining groundwater levels, and below-normal precipitation primarily across counties in the central and western portions of Pennsylvania.”
You will notice the Drought Phases listed on each water/sewer/recycling bill sent out to residents of the Borough.
The Drought Phases:
Drought Watch – Voluntary reduction of water use by 5%
Drought Warning – Voluntary reduction of water use by 10%
Drought Emergency – Mandatory water restrictions and implementation of water rationing.
