WYOMING, Mich. (WOOD) — Officials have lifted a sprinkler ban Wednesday night that impacted residents across West Michigan.

The Wyoming Regional Water System declared a level three water emergency while a water transmission main was being repaired.

The ban went into Aug. 11 and was lifted at 11 p.m. Wednesday.

The repairs impacts homeowners in several cities and townships in Kent and Ottawa counties, including the city of Hudsonville, Georgetown Township and the city of Wyoming. The Wyoming system serves some 230,000 customers.

The ban was expected to be lifted Aug. 25 but the city says the job was completed ahead of schedule due to good weather and hard work from contractors Kamminga & Roodvoets and Prein & Newhof.

More information on the water transmission main repairs can be found on the city’s website.

**Correction: A previous version of this article incorrectly stated two transmission mains were being worked on. While the system has two such mains, only one was taken offline for repairs. The other remained operational. We regret the mistake, which has been corrected.
