*The driest spring on record and unusually high weekend demand for water has prompted the Fairfax County Water Authority to ask its 150,000 customers to limit lawn watering to weekdays and one day on weekends.
Customers with odd number street addresses are asked to voluntarily limit weekend watering to Saturdays, and customers with even numbers are requested to water on Sundays.
