As expected, Winchester Municipal Utilities has lifted its Phase 1 Water Shortage Advisory for all of Clark County.
WMU intended to release a notice to customers of a return to normal usage at the regular meeting of the commission Thursday, but equipment malfunctions earlier in the day led WMU General Manager Mike Flynn to hold off.
Flynn said he wanted to monitor water levels through the weekend.
The advisory, put into place earlier this month following a dry June, asked residents to limit non-essential water use, such as watering lawns, washing vehicles and filling swimming pools.
WMU provides water to Kentucky American Water and East Clark County Water District, so all Clark County residents were affected by the water-usage advisory.
Compared to June, July has been extremely wet. Clark County saw just .88 inches of rain in June and 3.84 inches so far in July.
