Towns ease outdoor watering restrictions as Jordan Lake rises

CARY, N.C. (AP) -- Residents of Cary and Apex will soon be able to resume outdoor watering now that Jordan Lake is above normal. Starting Tuesday, the towns will revert to their alternate day watering systems. This will allow customers to use irrigation systems and sprinklers three days a week, depending on the property's address. No lawn irrigation will be allowed on Mondays, but hand watering is allowed any day of the week. The rules apply to water customers in Apex, Cary, Morrisville and Research Triangle Park South, plus Raleigh-Durham International Airport. Officials in both towns encouraged people to continue to conserve water. The lake is the source of drinking water for Cary and Apex.
