You printed an error on the days one can water in Forsyth County. For those with odd numbered addresses, it should be Tuesday and SUNDAY. Only even numbered addresses can water on a Saturday.

I agree. There is an error. The Forsyth County Website says we can still water twice a week. Odd on T/Su and Even on W/Sat

Ok when you have no water to water the grass than what? Is having a green lawn more important than drinking water? Oh these people probably think that the goverment should take care of them so when will these people start taking care of them selfs and realize there are more important things in life than a green lawn..... say family.

It seemed to me as I watched the woman being interviewed last night on the news that she was definitely short on common sense. She was warned once and then fined for being caught watering her lawn again. She thought she should have been warned at least twice before she was fined. What - is she not old enough to get the message the first time? Once seems to be quite enough for an adult. We are in a drought situation - don't water your lawn. That is just common sense.
