Despite rains, Boone drought holds on

Boone County — Boone County is emerging, if only marginally, from its worst drought in decades.

Whitestown and Zionsville have lifted mandatory outdoor watering bans, although officials are asking residents to be prudent in using water.

Whitestown Town Council President Dawn Semmler asked that residents and businesses continue to voluntarily restrict water use, however, “to ensure that the local water resources are fully recharged by next spring.”

Semmler asked that established lawns and trees be watered once weekly; new sod and seed be watered on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. She asked for residents to continue to refrain from washing cars or hosing down sidewalks and driveways.
