West Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- West Fargo has banned watering lawns after levels in its water towers dropped to less than 25%.

Every summer, the city enacts watering restrictions between 10am and 6pm.

But with one of the city wells under reconstruction, the water towers were still not keeping up.

That, and our dry weather, took a toll on the water supply.

Barry Johnson- Public Works Director: "What happens is people come home from the lakes and tend to really turn the lawn watering on. The watering restrictions just weren't keeping up with it."

Public Works director Barry Johnson says the levels are getting back to normal, after the ban went into effect Sunday night.

They expect the ban will last a couple weeks.
