Union County is asking community members to commit to its water conservation challenge due to a drought watch for the Catawba-Wateree Basin.

Warm conditions and low stream flow are what prompted the Catawba-Wateree Drought Management Advisory to announce the drought watch.

Union County said in a statement it is important to use water wisely and not waste it. They ask that community members commit to at least two simple water-saving behaviors to conserve water. They suggest options like taking five-minute-or-less showers and turning off the faucet while brushing teeth, washing hands or shaving.
