The ban, which took effect on July 13, restricted residents from watering their lawns, washing their cars, filling swimming pools and installing new landscaping by using sod.
Although the ban will be lifted, Citizens Energy Group urges customers to continue to limit watering of established lawns and trees to once a week, only water sod and see on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and to not wash cars or use hoses to clean sidewalks, driveways or other surfaces.
“The fact that water use has dropped nearly 60 million gallons per day since the ban went into effect shows us that customers listened to Citizens’ pleas to conserve and were responsible stewards of our water supply, “ said Carey Lykins, President and CEO of Citizens Energy Group. “We encourage that same cooperation as voluntary restrictions go into place.”
