Jackson residents and businesses saved over 31% on their water consumption over the past 12 months, and as a result the conservation restrictions have ended, effective June 1, 2016. The 31% water conservation number by residential customers far exceeded the small-city figure of 25%, and Jackson schools saved over 54% during the same time period.
Jackson water customers are still required to conserve water, including not irrigating lawns that create runoff into the street , using non-recirculated water in a fountain, watering within 48 hours of measurable precipitation, hosing off sidewalks and driveways, and washing cars without a shutoff.

Congratulations to all Jackson water users for the efforts you made during the drought conditions!!
