****Lifted**** Mandatory Water Use Restrictions - Continued Call for Voluntary Water Use Restrictions


Due to recent rainfall and increased water levels in the Rapidan River, Greene County is lifting mandatory water use restrictions put in place on September 7. The County is still urging customers to observe voluntary restrictions until further notice.
“While recent rainfalls have increased the water level in the Rapidan River, we could return to low levels without further precipitation,” said Alan Harrison, Director of Greene County Water and Sewer. “We encourage everyone to practice voluntary conservation measures until we receive sufficient rainfall.”

Mandatory restrictions are lifted effective Friday, September 15, 2023. Customers are encouraged to utilize voluntary water conservation measures including, but are not limited to:

1) Check toilets, faucets, hoses, and couplings for leaks and repair.
2) Take shorter showers, and tum off the water when shampooing, shaving, or brushing your teeth.
3) Reduce or eliminate outdoor water use, including watering of lawns and landscaping.
4) If necessary, using the least amount of water necessary, water your lawn on even or odd days based on address—even number addresses water on even days of the month, odd number addresses        water on odd days of the month.
5) Use a broom instead of a hose to clean off porches, stairs, driveways, and sidewalks.
6) Wash only full loads in washing machines and dishwashers or use the appropriate water level selection.
7) Reduce or eliminate vehicle washing.
8) Scrape—don't rinse—dishes before putting them in the dishwasher.
9) Wash vegetables and fruits in a basin of water, not allowing the water to run while washing.

The County will advise when river levels either return to the point that mandatory restrictions are again required or when voluntary restrictions are no longer called for. Thank you in advance for your assistance in preserving our needed water supply.

Have you received a letter from Rappahannock Electric Company (REC) stating that you are no longer part of the Firefly RISE Grant and will be served by a different internet provider?

Are you unsure if you are part of the coverage area for the Firefly RISE Grant?

If you received the letter from REC and you are not part of the Firefly RISE Grant area then you will receive high speed broadband coverage from Brightspeed within the same time period as the Firefly grant period.

Some locations are close enough to both grant areas that there will be a choice between the two providers.

Even if you are not in the Firefly grant area, please fill out the survey.  Firefly will serve locations outside of the grant area, and the survey identifies populated areas that should be added to the service area.

Please follow the instructions below to find your address:
