STORM LAKE, Iowa (KTIV) - City officials in Storm Lake, Iowa, have announced the mandatory water conservation measures put in place in July have been lifted.

According to a news release issued by city officials, the measure was lifted during the Monday, Sept. 19 council meeting.

The emergency restrictions began July 1 as water use spiked during the hot, dry summer months. The situation was further complicated as supply chain issues slowed repairs to a major city well.

The release stated the city’s well has been returned to service, and daily water demand has fallen to a reasonable level allowing water levels in the water towers to remain stable.
