Not good

Water usage in Durham spiked up yesterday to above 35 mgd, the highest use of the year, and higher than the monthly average for June of last year. We've got the odd thunderstorm in the forecast for the next 10 days, but again, you can't count on those. Current inflows at both Little River and Lake Michie are at their lowest levels in over a month (Little River in particular is getting near its all-time low for June again.) We're currently on pace to add onlyabout 8.75 mgd back to the reservoir.

Look for the city to go back to Stage IV (one day a week watering) if we don't see significant rainfall by the end of the month. I can't imagine that they will be caught with their pants down two years in a row.
