A temporary outdoor watering ban in Lincolnshire and several other Lake County communities was lifted Tuesday after being in place for less than a day, officials said. The ban was instituted because of problems at Highland Park's water treatment center. Highland Park supplies water to that city, as well as to Lincolnshire, Deerfield, Bannockburn and the Glenbrook Sanitary District. The water was safe to drink during the outdoor ban, which was described as a precautionary measure to ensure uninterrupted supply to all water customers.
