In a surprise move this week, the neighborhood of Boylan Heights has apparently tapped into a secret backup water reservoir located underground. This may help to explain why the neighborhood is at the highest altitude in downtown Raleigh.
Seriously, this drought is for real. According to WRAL, the “Droiught Management Advisory Council” (I didn’t know that Droiught was a word, thanks WRAL) decided that the City of Raleigh has about 4 months of water supply left. Unless something changes. Read the report here. That was last month. Today, the N&O reported that we have 98 days of water left! Are you serious? As you can see from the above image, the city of Raleigh does not seem to be too worried about this, as they impose stricter and stricter water restrictions on you and I.
