Knightdale has received a new shipment of rain barrels. The barrels are designed to connect to roof top gutter systems and collect run-off that can be stored and used for landscape and garden watering.
The barrels are $85.00, and can be purchased in the Finance window on the first floor.

Due to the recent rainfalls, all Raleigh water customers are now back on stage 1 restrictions. This includes the municipalities of Garner, Knightdale, Raleigh, Rolesville, Wake Forest, Wendell and Zebulon.
Since Stage 2 conservation measures took effect in mid-February, all outdoor use of Raleigh water has been banned.
Raleigh eased restrictions because Falls Lake is full for the first time in nearly a year.
Stage 1 mandatory water use restrictions reduce the days irrigation is allowed to one day per week. Odd property addresses are permitted on Tuesdays and even property addresses on Wednesdays. Raliegh Mayor Charles Meeker has suggested that these measure could become permanent.

Here are the stage 1 rules:

Automatic/non-automatic irrigation systems
ODD = Tuesday EVEN=Wednesday
12 a.m. (midnight) – 10 a.m.

Hose End Sprinklers
ODD = Tuesday EVEN=Wednesday
6 a.m.-10 a.m. and 6 p.m.-10 p.m.

Hand held hose
ODD = Tue./Sat EVEN = Wed./Sun.
6 a.m.-10 a.m. and 6 p.m.-10 p.m.
