If you have a private well can it be safely assumed that water restrictions are irrelevant? Forgive the apparently naive question from a lifelong public water customer.

That's the way I read it too. Unless you are a customer of a local governmental water system, the July 1st use restrictions don't apply.

WHOM IT AFFECTS

Water customers in Raleigh, Garner, Rolesville, Wake Forest, Knightdale, Wendell and Zebulon.

Should the restrictions be a warning to those with private wells that they too should limit their water usage?

Good point. I say yes, absolutely. If there isn't enough rain to replenish groundwater levels and folks keep pumping away and more and more homes are built with private and community wells that tap into the same aquifer, eventually you could run into dry well issues as well. Then you will really be in a pickle. Wether you get your water from falls Lake or a groundwater aquifer, it all gets replinished from the same place .... good old fashioned rain.
