Goochland County along with the city of Richmond and Henrico, Hanover, Chesterfield, and Powhatan counties are lifting voluntary conservation measures within their respective areas, effective immediately.
Recent rainfall has increased water flow levels in the James River to exceed the trigger point for voluntary conservation measures.
The city of Richmond measures river flow levels on a 14 day rolling average. In accordance with Richmond’s James River Regional Flow Management Plan, when river levels exceed the voluntary trigger point at the Westham Gauge for more than the prescribed 14 days, voluntary conservation measures may be lifted.
Goochland encourages its customers to continue to use water wisely, by conserving and re-using water where possible. Additional conservation tips may be found at vdh.virginia.gov/drinking-water/office-of-drinkingwater/water-conservation-tips/
Goochland residents with questions can contact the county’s Department of Public Utilities at 804-556-5835.
