OAKRIDGE, Ore. (AP) - A mandatory water curtailment in Oakridge put in place due to the drought has been lifted after residents successfully reduced their water usage.

The Register-Guard reports (https://is.gd/wXEXFi ) city officials say residents have used nearly 25 percent less water since the water restriction went into effect July 28 and ended last week.

City Administrator Louis Gomez in a statement said the city’s cooperation has allowed “wells to recharge” and enhanced the city’s ability to provide safe drinking water.

City officials still urge residents to conserve water, and not only in times of drought.
