Charlottesville & Albemarle County are Currently in a Drought

Weeks of dry conditions have resulted in lower than normal river & reservoir levels. Area residents are requested to restrict outdoor water usage, follow other drought restrictions, and implement water conservation measures. 

To sustain water supply levels, mandatory drought restrictions are in place:

  • No outdoor watering.
  • No washing of any vehicles or other types of mobile equipment except at a commercial vehicle wash facility.
  • No exterior surface washing including streets, driveways, parking lots, service station aprons, and outside of buildings.
  • No filling or replenishing swimming and wading pools.
  • No serving of water in restaurants, except upon request.
  • No use of fire hydrants for any other purpose other than fire suppression.
  • Limit daily changing of linens and towels at commercial lodging establishments.
