The North Carolina Department of Crime Control and Public Safety is recommending people set up water barrels to save water during the drought.

"A quarter inch of rain will fill a rain barrel to the brim. That water can be used to water lawns and gardens, fill bird baths, flush toilets, and many other water-saving ideas," a press release said.
Officials say you can buy rain barrels at most lawn and garden stores, for between $27 and $120.
