WOODSTOCK WATER CONSERVATION
"As many have noticed, our streams are low at the moment. Although we urge everyone to conserve water at all times, there is no current water alert for the Woodstock Water District. Private wells, however, may be a different matter and we urge homeowners outside the Water District to pay close attention to their water usage and availability. We will keep Water District customers informed if strict water conservation measures are called for. In the meantime, everyone should do their best to conserve water whether it be officially called for or not."
