Fishers, Brownsburg Water Bans Begin
More towns have issued watering bans as the severe drought keeps its grip on Indiana.
Brownsburg and Fishers are the latest towns to join Indianapolis in restricting customers from watering lawns, washing cars and filling pools. The bans allow customers to water gardens and flowers, but sprinklers are not allowed.
Customers caught violating the bans can be fined. Indianapolis code enforcement officers will not give a warning -- you will receive a ticket for $100 on the first offense.
Fines outside Indianapolis range from $300-500.
Noblesville has issued an order that allows customers to water a few days a week, but no watering is allowed on weekends.
