Abstract:
North Carolina is in the middle of a drought and the state has not done enough to help with the problem. The state needs to do more to educate the citizens of the need to conserve water. Strategic planning for water conservation is also needed at the state and city levels. Releasing press statements and public service announcements is not enough. An in-depth look at the state’s drought and specific details for how the state can conserve water are explored.

Abstract:
As the state’s drought gets worse, the amount of water available is an area of serious concern. The state can only step in to help with a water shortage if there is no water available at local stores and the market cannot support the state’s population. Private water bottling companies pull water from local municipalities and then sell it back to residents at a higher cost. The impact these companies have on the state’s supply and the state's drought plans are detailed in-depth.

Abstract:
Raleigh is working hard to develop a plan during this current water crisis. The city council ignored recommendations for a tiered-rate system advised by a task force after droughts in 2002 and 2005. Now, city council members are promising to look at serious conservation policies including a tiered-rate system. The problems with that system and possible solutions to the problem in Raleigh are detailed.

Abstract:
The most severe drought on record has hit North Carolina, amounting to several ecological problems around the state.

Abstract:
The Triangle area is in the middle of a drought and many individuals and local officials are ignoring the problem. Many residents are ignorant of their responsibility to their community. The problem also is showing how the overall demand for water is finally catching up with the supply which has been brought on by increased growth and a lack of planning. Officials need to develop long-term plans to deal with the problem.

Abstract:
The citizens of the Triangle area are flunking the water conservation test as the drought goes on. Most of the state and city leaders are failing citizens too. Soon, all residents will have no choice but deal with involuntary water cutbacks if the trends continue. This is the time for leaders and citizens step up and to work together to preserve what water is left.

The drought of 1988 has demonstrated the need for water policy development at all levels of government. A recent survey study by Dr. David H. Moreau, director of the Water Resources Research Institute at the University of North Carolina, indicates that at the local level, where first-line response to drought conditions must be taken, there is a need for improving the state of preparedness of water utilities to deal with the effects of drought.

Abstract:
According to the North Carolina Agricultural Extension Service, the drought affecting the Piedmont and Mountain regions of the state came at one of the worst times possible for agriculture. As early crops in July struggled to survive and bear, later plantings of soybeans and sorghum were having trouble germinating. The drought’s impacts are also affecting cattle and poultry producers.
