During a Declared Level III Water Emergency, the following mandatory water use restrictions shall be in effect for the public water system served by the City. Level 3 Restrictions Penalties and Fees
The following activity will be permitted on any Saturday at any time effective June 14th, 2008:
- Residential car washing will be allowed using a hand-held hose
or pressure washer equipped with a spring-loaded nozzle.
The following activities are permitted all day on Tuesday and

spring-loaded nozzle. The user shall ensure the minimum amount of water used for watering.
The following activities ARE NOT permitted under the modifications to the Level III Mandatory Water Restrictions:
- NO lawn watering using any type of system connected to the
municipal water system shall be permitted.
- NO irrigation services will be activated. (Irrigation services
may be installed; but no meters will be set or activated until the drought has subsided.)
- Filling of swimming pools and operation of ornamental fountains
is still prohibited; however, topping off is acceptable.
- Use of water for wash down of outside areas is prohibited except
for pressure washing businesses with an appropriate privilege license.
These businesses will ensure the waste of water does not occur.
ALL OTHER RESTRICTIONS REMAIN IN EFFECT.
We appreciate the continued efforts of our citizens to conserve water; however, without continued rainfall, conditions could change rapidly.
We encourage our citizens to remain diligent in their conservation efforts. Customers are reminded to pursue projects cautiously given the persistent drought conditions that we are experiencing and should remain aware of current water use restrictions as published. The above amendments to our Level III Mandatory Water Restrictions for all City of Concord, Kannapolis, Harrisburg, Landis and Mount Pleasant customers will become effective at 12 a.m. Saturday June 14, 2008.

- Encourage friends and neighbors and
co-workers to be a part of a water conscious community.
Report any broken pipes to your local Utility Department.
- Wash full loads of laundry or adjust
your water levels for smaller loads.
- Use less water for baths or make a
conscious effort to take shorter showers. (There are many water saving devices to restrict the flow,
to save on conservation and cost through the City's
Customer Service Department.)
- Avoid rinsing dishes one at a time
with water running, rinse all together in the sink.
Accumulate and wash full loads of dishes in the dishwasher.
Try to do one thing each day that will
result in saving water. Remember that every drop counts
and you can make a difference.
