Holly Springs Eases Water Restrictions

Posted April 2, 2008 10:09 a.m. EDT

— Starting Wednesday Holly Springs will allow the use of automated irrigation and sprinkler systems three times a week, the town council said.

The council voted on Tuesday to ease water restrictions to match those of its supplier, Harnett County. With improvement in the region’s drought, Harnett County was able to modify its water conservation measures a few days earlier.

Odd-number addresses and even-number addresses will alternate days of sprinkler and irrigation use. No use of public water for irrigation or sprinklers will be allowed on Fridays.

A 30-day watering permit for new seed or sod will cost $50. However, the fee will be waived for warm season grasses.

Other restrictions that have been in place are lifted for now, but the town is asking residents to conserve water however they can.

Residents can wash vehicles at home any day of the week and power wash homes.
