Mandatory water restrictions in Lincoln will stay in place for now.
Mayor Chris Beutler says the restrictions, which went into effect on August 9th, will remain until flows improve on the Platte River.
The city's goal for water use is 55 million gallons a day or less. Water use in August averaged 57 million gallons a day while water use for the first five days of September was 52 million gallons.
Under the mandatory restrictions, all water customers must follow a designated schedule for outdoor watering, including the washing of vehicles.
Police have issued about 350 tickets for violations so far.
