Water usage restrictions lifted
Voluntary restrictions on nonessential water use are no longer necessary for Medford Water Commission customers, the agency reported Tuesday.
This applies to properties in Medford, Central Point, Eagle Point, Phoenix, Talent and White City, a Medford Water Commission news release said.
Water restrictions were instituted Wednesday, Sept. 9, due to firefighting operations, banning use of ornamental fountains, car washing except at facilities that recycle water, all nonemergency hydrant use and water main flushing, dust control except at construction sites, and washing of sidewalks, streets, decks and driveways except as needed to maintain public health and safety.
On Sept. 10, the restrictions were reduced to voluntary.
“These actions were a precaution to preserve water for fire emergencies and necessary domestic use, and we appreciate the cooperation and sacrifice of our customers,” the news release said. “We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as they become necessary.”
