Drought Conditions Cause Voluntary Water Use Restrictions
Much of New York State is currently experiencing significant ongoing drought conditions.
As a result, many waterbodies, including Canandaigua Lake, are at lower levels than normal and continue to drop.
The lower level of the lake can cause problems with water supplies, lake outflow management and other environmental concerns.
The Wayne County Water and Sewer Authority, in conjunction with the Village of Palmyra,
is asking the community to
voluntarily reduce water usage by not watering lawns, washing cars, etc.
This includes all Village of Palmyra customers along with WCWSA customers in the Towns of Palmyra, Arcadia and Lyons
In light of the state-wide drought warning that is in effect,
conservation measures are
encouraged of ALL WCWSA water customers
throughout Wayne County.
These restrictions are in effect until further notice.
