Last year's drought forced the City of Abilene to cut back the watering of both residential and commercial landscapes to just once a week.
Unfortunately, the surplus of rainfall hasn't done much to help. Wayne Lisenbee with the Water Utilities Department tells KTXS that this is all because the restrictions are closey tied to the lake levels of Lake Fort Phantom Hill.
Residents are allowed to water on a designated day prior to 10 a.m. and after 6 p.m. A link to the watering day list is available at the bottom.
Watering with a hand held hose is allowed anytime but it must have a stop valve on the nozzle.
While the city is still enforcing the restrictions, they say the number of citations issued has gone down.
