July 16, 1953 - Lawn sprinkling banned: Lawn sprinkling and street and sewer flushing with city water were officially banned today until further notice.

Telegraphic authority was given the Green Bay Water Commission by the Public Service Commission to reinstate the restrictions ordered two years ago. These consist of five steps, to be adopted in order as the condition becomes more serious. They are: 1. Elimination of lawn sprinkling. 2. Elimination of street and sewer flushing, except with water drawn from the river. 3. Shutting down of air conditioning using water directly or indirectly. 4. Discontinuing use of water for swimming pools. 5. Restricting use of water by commercial and industrial customers, except where food supplies or public health would be endangered.

The Water Commission is placing the first two steps in effect immediately, according to W.H. MacDonald, president. After a survey of the situation over the week end, a decision will be made whether to invoke the third step.
