Albemarle Co. and Charlottesville Lift Water Restrictions

January 10, 2008

Both Albemarle County and the city of Charlottesville have lifted water restrictions in the area. The county lifted the restriction on Wednesday and Charlottesville Monday night.

The restrictions had been in place due to drought conditions. Officials are still asking residents to conserve water. With the restrictions lifted residents can now wash their cars and fill their pools without being fined.

The area's supplier, the Rivanna Water and Sewer Authority, put the drought warning into effect on August 15th. They lowered it to a drought watch at the beginning of this year, giving the city and the county the option of lifting water restrictions.
