Outdoor Notes

WATER AT CAMPSITES

Campers at Jordan Lake SRA were ad­vised that the individual water at each campsite was turned off for the winter as they don’t have frost free spigots and lines will be in danger of freezing and pipes bursting. There will be hot water available for showers at the shower houses and water spigots near shower houses for campers to fill up holding tanks on RV campers as needed.

North Carolinians voted 57 percent yes, 43 percent no to pass hunting/fishing constitutional amendment. Ten counties voted against the measure including Orange (74.5% no), Chat­ham (56.8% no), Durham (75.2% no).

Wake County voters approved $120M for parks, greenways, recreation projects, with 67.76 percent voting yes. It passed in all but 4 of 120 precincts and had the highest number of total yes votes of the three bond measures on the ballot.
