Posted May 28, 1997 12:00 a.m. EDT

— People in Harnett County can rest assured their lawns will get needed water. Last week county leaders asked folks not to water their lawns, wash their cars or fill their pools, but rains this weekend have helped ease some of the area's water shortage.

Now the county is putting residents on a rotation according to their zip codes. That means people will be able use water for all of their non-essential uses two days a week until the entire ban can be lifted.
