Water Conservation Order Lifted In Johnston County

Posted August 18, 2004 12:02 p.m. EDT

— Johnston County has lifted a mandatory

water conservation order

that had been in effect since Tuesday.

The order officially was lifted at noon Wednesday.

Town officials had shut down the Wilson's Mills plant Tuesday because of a problem involving the chemicals that treat the water.

The county had asked customers not to water their lawns or wash their cars until the water supply was replenished.

WRAL was told Wednesday that the treatment plant and storage had returned to normal levels.
