Portsmouth bans outdoor lawn watering all together

PORTSMOUTH — A unanimous vote has put a ban on outdoor lawn watering in the city due to the extreme drought.

City Council decided the ban will begin on Thursday. Previously, Portsmouth had an odd/even water restriction, allowing watering on odd days only-but that will now end, according to seacoastonline.

Reports state that this is the 11th consecutive month with less than average precipitation.

The ban will allow for golf courses to water their tees and greens, but not the fairways or roughs. It will also allow hand-held watering of vegetable gardens, flowers, and nurseries.
