Once-per-week watering restrictions over after nearly 11 months!

Quote:
San Antonio Water System, in consultation with City Manager Sheryl Sculley, announces the end to Stage One drought restrictions effective Tuesday, March 6. Year-round watering restrictions are reinstated effective tomorrow.

"After 10 months, we will finally be out of once-a-week watering restrictions, but keep in mind that year-round restrictions do apply," said Chuck Ahrens, SAWS Vice President of Water Resources and Conservation. "That means you can water on any day, but still only before 10 a.m. or after 8 p.m."

"We have seen drought restrictions halt a precipitous drop in the aquifer during one of the driest years on record. By working together as a community, we were able to hold off more stringent watering restrictions while gaining more time for the drought to abate." (Full story)
Yippee!

Cheers! M2
