GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - People who get their water from Lake Keowee in the Upstate are being urged to cut down on water usage.

The Greenville News reported (https://grnol.co/2drkd2v) that the Keowee-Toxaway River Basin is now considered in Level 2 drought status. There are five drought categories.

Residents who live on Lake Keowee and Lake Jocassee who draw water from the lake for irrigation must limit their watering to Tuesdays and Saturdays only under the declaration of the Keowee-Toxaway Drought Management Advisory Group.

Voluntary water conservation is being urged by officials of water systems that use Lake Keowee as a source.
