Stafford Water Restrictions Lifted

STAFFORD COUNTY, Va. – Go ahead and turn on the water if you live in Stafford County.

Voluntary restrictions that limited the amount of water use by county residents placed on have been lifted. They were in place since at least late spring.

More rainfall has helped to stabilize the water levels at the county’s two reservoirs, Abel and Smith lakes. More rain in the foreseeable future and lower demand on water during the fall and winter months means the restrictions will be unnecessary, according to Stafford County spokeswoman Shannon Howell.

While restrictions have been lifted, the county reminds residents to use water wisely.

During the voluntary restrictions officials urged residents to use a bucket instead of a hose to water bushes, flowers, and gardens.

What is this?

Stafford’s water facilities produce 13.8 million gallons of water each day.
