Fall Conservation

That trend continued throughout the summer, leaving many residents and tourists alike longing for more sun and less rain as we move past the season when outdoor water use normally peaks.

Winter Conservation

As custodians of the town’s water resources, we here at the York Water District strive to make water conservation a yearlong endeavor, for individual households and for the community as a whole. The colder temperatures and shorter hours of daylight result in most of us spending more time indoors, but this doesn’t mean we should relax our efforts to conserve water.
