Outdoor water use ban imposed in Lincolnshire

Success - Article sent! close

A ban on outdoor water use in Lincolnshire was announced Monday, effective immediately.

Residents and business owners were ordered not to use water outdoors because the town's water supply has been limited, according to a news release. Indoor use isn't restricted.

Lincolnshire gets drinking water through Highland Park's system, and that city's treatment plant upgrade project has encountered unexpected issues, officials said.

Clogged strainers have apparently affected the city's ability to deliver water, Lincolnshire officials said.

The ban will be lifted once the strainers are unclogged.

Lincolnshire's water is safe for consumption.
