— The Town of Cary issued a reminder Thursday to water customers in Cary and Morrisville that automated irrigation, including the use of hoses and sprinklers is allowed only on alternate days.

Odd- numbered street addresses may water on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Even-numbered street addresses may water on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. No watering is permitted on Mondays.

Watering by hand is allowed any day of the week.

The best time of day to water is during the morning, when water has a chance to soak into the ground before the heat of the day causes evaporation.
