They all have water restrictions.

And here's what you get in return for conserving - Watering is so scant that rates might rise again - Wake County - NewsObserver.com

We just got our water bill in Holly Springs and they always send a newsletter with it. They mentioned that there are currently no water restrictions at all. Previously, you could water 3 times a week on alternating days.

I believe water restrictions, at least for Raleigh, are only during a drought. The rules talk about what to do in "Stage 1," "Stage 2," etc.

Here is info for towns in Wake County:

All Raleigh water system customers are under everyday water conservation measures. These restrictions remain in place in 2010 until changes warrant. The municipalities of Garner, Knightdale, Raleigh, Rolesville, Wake Forest, Wendell and Zebulon comprise this water system.
