WHEN TO WATER

You can water today if your home address is an even number in Columbia and Richmond counties, which are under Level Two restrictions.

Watering is allowed from midnight to 10 a.m. on an even-odd system based on street address. No watering is allowed on Mondays.

ODD-NUMBERED ADDRESSES: Water on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

EVEN-NUMBERED ADDRESSES: Water on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

There are no water restrictions in South Carolina's Aiken, Barnwell and McCormick counties.

WAYS TO SAVE WATER

- Direct downspouts and other runoff toward shrubs and trees, or collect and use for your garden.
