LYNDONVILLE – The Village of Lyndonville and the Town of Yates are lifting a water use restriction that had been in place since July 13.

The recent rainfall has reduced demands on the Lyndonville-Yates water system, Village Clerk Teri Woodworth said today. The village and the Yates Water District 4 urged residents to scale back on water use for about six weeks while the area was gripped in a drought.

The restriction policy sets out to conserve water. Some of the restrictions included no public water can be used to wash vehicles, and watering lawns or gardens is limited to between 4 and 5 a.m., and 9 and 10 p.m.
