Durham considers easing water restrictions
Posted September 3, 2008
Durham, N.C. — City water managers want to repeal local water restrictions except for the twice-weekly limit on using sprinklers, but City Manager Tom Bonfield said he wants to hold off on easing the restrictions.
Bonfield said he wants to see updated drought information Thursday to determine whether Durham has enough water in its reservoirs to last until spring if restrictions were lifted. He said it's best to move slowly when easing restrictions.
