HOWARD COUNTY, Md. (WMAR) - Howard County officials have lifted the voluntary water restrictions that were put in place to conserve water as they worked to fix a broken water main.
Repairs to the 54-inch delivery main have been completed by both Baltimore City and Howard County Department of Public Works, therefore water restrictions have been lifted.
The City water main is one of two lines from the City that delivers the majority of water to Howard County. Loss of the key was supply can reduce Howard County's ability to meet the additional demand of outdoor water use, thus the restrictions.
County Executive Ken Ulman thanked residents for their cooperation during the last few weeks as they worked to repair the line.
