Raleigh water customers are being told to do all they can to conserve water.

With the prospect of being forced to cut back even more and the idea of raising water rates under construction, some people are wondering why the city is waiting to in force the next stage of water restrictions.

Despite being in the middle of the worst drought on record, car washes are still being allowed to operate, which infuriates some people.

However, with stage two restrictions looming, city leaders say they are sticking to the 90 day water supply benchmark.
