WILLIAMS, Ariz. (AP) - Williams’ water situation has improved, thanks in large part to a recent winter storm.

The northern Arizona city had been faced with low reservoirs and a need to augment its water supplies with new or deeper wells due to a lack of winter moisture, well failures and aging infrastructure.

However, the Arizona Daily Sun (https://goo.gl/QPwQwp ) reports that recent rain and snow was a big boost to the city’s reservoirs, which now hold a 16-month supply of water based on peak summer demand.

It also helped that a well out of operation of May started working again March 7.

That enabled Williams to lift limits on building permits, watering of lawns and washing of cars, among other activities.



The city now only recommends conservation.
