The Germantown Department of Public Works lifted the lawn watering ban Tuesday to alternate sides of the road as a result of conservation efforts and favorable weather conditions.
On even days, watering is allowed along the even side of the road and on odd days watering is allowed along the odd side of the road.
Pumping times have decreased, allowing one out of the six village pumps to recharge for 24 hours at a time.
"We're giving each pump one day off, so that's a good thing," said Director of Public Works Dan Ludwig.
The water levels and aquifers are beginning to rise slightly. With proper conservation continuing with the odd and even schedule and periodic rain, Ludwig said they felt a full lawn watering ban was no longer needed.
