People in the community of Perth, Ont., are being asked to voluntarily reduce their water use as drought in the Rideau Valley watershed could become "moderately severe" by Sunday.

Flows in the Rideau River are at about 15 per cent of their normal level for this time of year, the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority said in a statement issued Thursday.
