Aiken begins voluntary water restrictions

  • Follow Metro

The city of Aiken has implemented voluntary water restrictions after the South Carolina Drought Response Committee declared the area in an extreme drought.

All residents with an address ending in an odd number are advised to water on days that end in an odd number. Residents with an address ending in an even number should water on days that end in an even number, according to an Aiken Department of Public Safety news release.

The restrictions will remain in place until the drought lessens. The city will consider mandatory restrictions if the drought intensifies.

For more information, call the city’s Engineering and Utilities Department at (803) 642-7610.

Don't know how you Aiken

Don't know how you Aiken folks do it, but please don't water your grass at the midday times...between 10 am and 4 pm like I see alot of people on this side of the river do it. It just does NOT make any sense at all! Evaporation will suck just about all of it up before it gets the chance to soak into the yard. Okay, so now that I've got that off my chest, does Columbia or Richmond county have any watering restrictions yet?

Okay, Augusta

Okay, Augusta Chronicle...this new title thing y'all have going on is about aggravating. What's the point in having the first few words of the comment come up as the "title" to the comment? Well, I guess it's the title. I dont get it and it's irritating to read it, and then read the same words again in the early part of the comment's text. Just my opinion.

The city of Aiken has plenty

The city of Aiken has plenty of water and has never had to go on so called voluntary mandated restrictions even when other areas like Augusta has. Is this the long reach of dhec?

Or have the planners fallen down on the job, a job done extremely well for many decades? All on the heals of the announcement of a rate increase!
