Outdoor Watering Ban Begins in Midland

MIDLAND - Tall City residents should put away the hoses and forget about watering outdoors for the next few weeks.

Starting Monday, the city is asking all residents to not water outdoors. A major project is underway to replace aging water system infastructure and the city is hoping that the ban will maintain good water pressure in your tap.

The ban is in effect until Saturday, February 21st. Major water users in Midland like Midland College and MISD have also been asked to stop watering outdoors as well.

The good news is mother nature brought some nice rain showers to Midland Sunday night before the ban started.
