6.7.2007 – Stage 3 announcement has been reposted on BWW website. All links are now active.

UPDATE: It appears as though the warning has been removed from the site as quickly as it appeared. We did save a PDF of the page using the site’s print function, (just in case) though it would be safe to assume that the warning may have been released earlier than intended.

4:37 p.m.;It appears that they will be making the formal announcement sometime tomorrow (Thursday). We will assume that at that time, either these links will be reactivated or new links will be created on the site. We will update this post accordingly and provide new information as it becomes available.

The Birmingham Water Works, serving much of the Birmingham, AL metropolitan area, has announced that the region served is now in Stage 3 of its drought management plan.

All watering guidelines that were in place during Stage 2 are now mandatory with violators facing penalties.

The Water Works site has the guidelines posted as part of the release, though the surcharges are not. Let’s hope it doesn’t get much worse before it gets better.
