ISSUE:

Water supply continues to be an issue in Anne Arundel County.

Yesterday, county officials lifted a ban on outdoor water use along the far western and northern tiers of the county that had been implemented last week. But the county now returns to water restrictions that went into effect in early May.

Though the situation has improved, the restrictions are expected to be in place until October, and county officials are imploring residents to adhere to them.

The police have said officers would issue warnings for those who violate the restrictions, then hand out fines starting at $125 a violation. Public works officials have said that residents who don't respond to warnings and fines will have their water service shut off.
