— New, year-round lawn-watering restrictions are in effect, starting Monday for Raleigh customers.

Watering will be limited to three days a week. Odd-numbered addresses can water on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Even-numbered addresses can water on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. No watering can take place on Mondays.

The rules also apply to people in Garner, Knightdale, Rolesville, Wake Forest, Wendell and Zebulon, which get their water from Raleigh. The restrictions do not apply to hand-held hoses.

Those who violate the water restrictions will first receive a written warning. A second violation will cost you $50. The penalty goes up to $200 for a third violation.

Violators who get caught a fourth time will have their water turned off.
