STORRS â€” The University of Connecticut is lifting its voluntary water conservation notice that had previously been implemented in September.
The â€śStage 1A Water Conservation Alertâ€ť was in effect since Sept. 25 and was lifted on Tuesday.
The water conservation alert was lifted because recent rainfall has partially restored stream flow in the rivers near the well fields, according to a release issued by the Town of Mansfield.
The current water supply is enough to meet current and forecasted demands, as well as emergency needs such as firefighting.
Despite the improvement, UConn is still asking students, faculty and staff to be conscientious of daily water usage and voluntarily conserve water.
The most severe water conservation notice occurred last fall, when a â€śStage IV Water Supply Emergencyâ€ť was in effect.
That water emergency required mandatory and drastic water conservation efforts.
