Kaine urges water conservation while drought conditions low

From NBC12 News

Gov. Tim Kaine hosted a drought and water conservation forum yesterday in downtown Richmond.

While most of the commonwealth is not in a drought situation right now, that wasn't the case just six weeks ago and may not be the case this summer.

Experts say now is the time to plan for water shortage.

The governor offered a simple plan for conservation with a message aimed at Virginians state-wide.

"Let's use water wisely so that we don't have to get to the place where mandatory restricitons get put in place," Kaine said. "We think we'll be fine and then you wake up one  day and there's a problem."

Under a state law passed in 2003, localities need to write official water supply plans by this year.
