Raleigh ends water restrictions

May 1, 2012 2:46:16 PM PDT
The City of Raleigh announced Tuesday that it has lifted its long-standing water restrictions for homes and businesses.

The council's vote was unanimous.

The measure eliminated "odd-even" lawn watering, allowing homeowners to water every day.

Officials said Tuesday that the city's water supply reached capacity, and normal rainfall was predicted by weather forecasters for the summer.

However, Raleigh and its surrounding areas continue to be under moderate drought conditions.
