September 2, 2018 ~ There is a Conserve Water Advisory in place in Roberts Arm. The Town drained the water supply pond when a new water dam was constructed in June of this year. The pond is reported to be still at a low level due to the lack of significant rainfall this summer.
Roberts Arm residents have been asked to “refrain from using unnecessary water, such as watering lawns, cars, driveways, etc.”
Low water levels also means a strain on the water supply system in the case of fire.
That was exactly the case last night when fire burned a vacant house there, melting the siding on nearby houses.
