RIDGEWOOD, N.J. – All water restrictions on Ridgewood Water customers will be lifted effective Thursday, village officials announced.
"Even though rainfall in our area remains below normal, lower temperatures and the onset of autumn are expected to limit the peaks in demand for water that severely stressed the distribution system this summer," Village Manager Roberta Sonenfeld wrote.
"The combination of Stage 4 restrictions and stricter enforcement resulted in a successful outcome," she added. "We thank our residents who did comply with Stage 4 restrictions and encourage all to make water conservation a permanent part of their lifestyles."
Sonenfeld said Ridgewood Water would look into ways to encourage efficient water use and would ask for input from residents.
