Water Restrictions Reminder
Concord and Kannapolis are committed to environmentally sustainable water use practices 365 days a year during normal conditions and periods of drought.   Irrigation creates the single largest demand for water during spring and summer months.
 Lawn irrigation is allowed on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
.Those who violate the specified lawn irrigation days watering rule will receive written notice of the violation and the appropriate fee will be assessed.
 .All customers are allowed to use pressure washing devices.
 The following activities are permitted at anytime:
.The filling, operation, or topping off of ornamental fountains.
.Residential car washing will be allowed using a hand-held hose or pressure washer, both equipped with a spring-loaded nozzle.
.Residential use of water for wash down of outside areas using a hand-held hose or pressure washer, both equipped with a spring-loaded nozzle.
.Watering of trees, flowers, shrubs, ornamental plants and vegetable gardens for plant preservation.
.Automated irrigation services may be installed and activated.
.Filling of swimming pools by permit. Topping off of previously filled pools is still acceptable at any time.
In order to continue protecting our natural resources, the cities and the communities they serve are maintaining restrictions on days of irrigation and also use water pricing to promote further conservation.
Research shows that properly maintained lawns only need 1 inch of water per week to thrive, and it is best to water during evening and early morning hours.
We thank our customers for reducing their demand and assisting us with water conservation efforts. Our businesses and residents continue to demonstrate leadership in water conservation and environmental protection.

Booker Drive Street Realignment Project Starting in April, 2010
The City of Concord will be proceeding with the Booker Drive realignment project at the intersection with Salem Street.  The project  involves improvements to the intersection along with adjustments to other infrastructure.
There will be a traffic detour and limited access during the construction period, and efforts will be made to minimize inconveniences to the extent possible. The stakes have been placed to define the future road and erosion control is in place. Crews will be on the site Monday, May 10th to start construction.
This project is partially funded with Federal stimulus funds received through the Community Development Block Grant program and is designed to improve the safety and functionality of this intersection.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Engineering Construction Inspection Division at 704.920.5404 during regular working hours.
