[ARCHIVED] Stage II Water Alert Lifted

The City of Battle Ground’s Stage II Water Alert, declared last month on August 4, has been lifted.  While the recent rain and cooler weather has reduced the demand for water, year-round water conservation, even here in the rainy Pacific Northwest, is a worthwhile and cost-saving practice. 
  • Using less water keeps money in your household pocket.  Basic water conservation techniques can save thousands of gallons of water each year. 
  • Sewer volume is based on water consumption. The City of Battle Ground establishes an individual customer's sewer use by averaging the user's water consumption for the preceding winter months of December through March. Employing water conservation techniques, even in the winter months, can provide savings on your sewer costs.
  • Water resources are not an unlimited supply. The City of Battle Ground uses 8 wells to draw water from underground aquifers. Water production levels, however, are only at 80% of capacity and continue to decline. Rainfall, even in the amounts we experience, does not immediately or completely recharge aquifers.
