  • Drought Warning
Weeks of dry conditions have caused lower-than-normal river and reservoir levels.  As a result, the City of Charlottesville is requesting residents to reduce water usage in order to sustain water supply levels.  On October 3rd, 2017, the City of Charlottesville issued a Drought Watch press release, which put in place voluntary drought restrictions related to outdoor water use.  On October 5th, Rivanna Water and Sewer Authority issued a Drought Warning for Charlottesville and Albemarle County.  We are particularly concerned with the declining water level of the South Fork Rivanna Reservoir, which is less than half full at the moment.  As a result, the City of Charlottesville is expected to issue a Drought Warning in the coming days, which would involve mandatory drought restrictions.  These restrictions include no outdoor watering, no washing of any vehicles, no washing exterior surfaces, and other water usage limitations.

The city will be updating information regarding Charlottesville’s drought status on our Drought Webpage (, as well as our social media pages (Water Conservation Facebook- and Twitter-  As a reminder, our Water Conservation Program offers free indoor water conservation kits and numerous tips and resources (
