The mandatory ban on unnecessary water usage was informally lifted Wednesday morning by the Village Board of Trustees and Mayor Frank Pagano.

Formal action will be taken at Monday night's board meeting. During the ban, residents who use the village's water system were prohibited from watering their flower gardens and washing cars.

Pagano urged people to continue to conserve water, even though "the rain brought the level in the reservoir higher than the upper intake."

The village will continue to purchase water from the City of Dunkirk. A connection with a pump station on Main Street Extension was constructed after the 1991 drought.

Officials have said they do not want a repeat of last year when the reservoir was too low in November.
