READ APRIL 20th 2009 UPDATE AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST
April 25, 2008 - Recent rains has Lake Wylie looking full these days. See an earlier post called Lake Wylie at Full pond. So many local residents have been wondering when the stage 3 water restrictions set last fall would be lifted.
Rock Hill and Fort Mill have recently reduced restrictions so it was time for the Tega Cay City Council to decide if they would follow suit. Tega Cay Councilman Les Conner said although the lake is up, ground water levels are still low and challenged whether they should reduce restrictions. But the council voted last Monday to allow residents to water lawns again.
The revised ordinance will allow Tega Cay residents to water their lawns one day a week. Odd number addresses can water Saturdays from 12:01 am to 9am. Even number addresses can water Sundays from 12:01am to 9am. Vehicle washing is still prohibited. Click here to see revised ordinance 325.
