Mount Airy ends limits on outdoor water use

November 06, 1997

Mount Airy has lifted restrictions on outdoor water use that were imposed in August after three months of drought.

Town Council President R. Delaine Hobbs announced at Monday night's meeting that he was lifting the ban. He said the Mount Airy area is still 5 inches below average rainfall for the year. Water use last month was below August levels, he said.

A shortage of rainfall during the summer prompted Manchester, Hampstead, Mount Airy and Taneytown to prohibit watering lawns and washing cars. Carroll County adopted every-other-day restrictions for water customers in the Freedom District in South Carroll.
