October 17, 2018 ~ The Town Council of Roberts Arm declared a State of Emergency on October 15th. It stems from their water supply pond having extremely low levels of water.
Work was done on a dam at the pond this past summer and, due to a dry summer, levels didn’t return to normal.
Residents were repeatedly asked to conserve water.
The Town began pumping water from another pond to the water supply pond, and called for volunteers to assist them. Despite all the effort, the State of Emergency was called on Monday.
