A new drought report is out and much of the area still remains in an extreme drought, however, lake levels have risen significantly in the past month.

It has prompted several towns to ease water restrictions, including Apex.

Starting next Tuesday, Apex water customers will be able to use sprinklers and irrigation systems again.

Even number addresses can water on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays; while odd numbered addresses can water on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.

No one will be able to water on Mondays.Hand held hose watering is allowed every day.

And beginning Friday, Harnett County will ease water restrictions also. Watering will be allowed between midnight and 10 a.m., but on an even-odd numbered address schedule.
