Dear Raleigh Water Customer:

Due to recent rainfall events and improved conditions at Falls Lake, the Raleigh City Council has moved to rescind the Revised
Stage 1 Mandatory Water Use Restrictions, which have been in effect since May 28, 2008, and implement the Everyday Perma-
nent Water Conservation Rules.

Use of Raleigh supplied potable water is limited to no more than 3 days per week with a maximum accumulation of 1 inch per
week. The irrigation days are based on odd or even property addresses where irrigation is to occur and limited to the time period
specified for the type of irrigation.

Please refer to the City's web page at for complete information, and the chart below is a short
