Water Conservation and Demand Management

In an effort to manage Town water usage, a water conservation and demand management program was begun in 1996. This program will produce several benefits, including delaying future construction or expansion of water and wastewater treatment facilities, reducing the amount of treated wastewater discharged into the Neuse River, extending the useful life of the Jordan Lake drinking water supply, and conserving a limited natural resource. Secondary benefits include reduced management costs and energy savings due to less water being transported, treated and distributed.

It is the policy of the Town of Cary to develop and implement a water conservation and demand management program that will decrease the average annual per capita usage of potable water. The program will include a mixture of educational, financial, and regulatory initiatives to encourage water conserving practices where consistent with the overall mission and values of the Town of Cary.

To this end, the Town of Cary establishes the following goals for the water conservation/demand management program:

  • Support the high quality of life in Cary by providing safe, reliable water service, while reducing per capita use of water
  • Conserve a limited natural resource
  • Reduce costs of infrastructure expansion
The goals of this program will be implemented through additional Ordinances, Policies and Procedures which address the features and details of each facet of the program.
