The reservoir is full. The minimum release for February is 3.5 cubic feet per second (1,571 gallons per minute, 2.262 mgd), which is being exceeded by the overflow. At our current water usage level, we have about 368 days of water supply remaining. The average Hillsborough water usage during the last four weeks is 1.112 mgd (an 11.1 percent increase over the previous four-week period). Compared to the same four-week period in 2013, we are using 4 percent less water.
 
Hillsborough water customers are NOT under any water use restrictions, and the town is NOT under any withdrawal restrictions from the Eno River due to the river’s flow level.

Lake Orange is full.
