Northwest Arkansas, along with the rest of the country, is experiencing extreme temperatures and drought. While CentertonUtilities has the capacity to provide all the water to fulfill your needs, our supplier Benton Washington Reginal Public Water Authority (BWRPWA), who also supplies 16 other cities/utilities across NWA, is having issues and is losing ground every day.
While we are not under a conservation order at this time, if these hot and dry conditions continue, we may be required to implement measures to conserve as early as next week.
The primary issue is the irrigation of lawns. At this time, we are simply "asking" you to voluntarily conserve by not irrigating every day. Please change to irrigating every other day or even every third day.
Any help you can provide now will help eliminate the need to implement mandatory conservation measures.
