LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — For the second time in two months, the City of Fairbury is requesting residents conserve water.

This time, it’s being based on address:

  • addresses ending in even numbers are to limit outdoor water usage, including watering lawns,  washing vehicles, etc. to even calendar days
  • addresses ending in odd numbers are to limit their outdoor water usage, including watering lawns, washing vehicles, etc. to odd calendar days.

City officials say the continued dry conditions are partially to blame for the request.

They also cited an incident last month when the water level of the Fairbury water tower dipped significantly.

Officials say the situation will continue to be reviewed by staff on a regular basis and the request will remain in effect until further notice.
