Cary to lift ban on outdoor watering

April 1, 2008 5:08:10 AM PDT
With Jordan Lake, Cary's water supply above normal, Cary officials are allowing its customers to return to year-round alternate day watering starting April 1.Customers will be able to water outdoors using automated devices such as irrigation systems and sprinklers three days a week depending on the property's street address. Properties with odd number street addresses can be irrigated only on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Even number addresses may be watered only on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.

No outdoor automated watering is allowed on Mondays. Hand-watering and outdoor washing of any kind are allowed any day of the week. Cary 's rules affect water customers in Cary, Morrisville, RDU, and RTP South.

Penalties for violating Cary 's alternate day watering law are significant. The Town will provide a warning for the first violation and a $500 fine for the second. Subsequent violations are $1,000 each, with a six violation resulting in termination of water services.
