Responding to strong conservation by residents and businesses, the Lakewood City Council has repealed the city's mandatory water conservation program. The decision Tuesday night took effect immediately. The 58,000 residents and 1,000 business and industrial customers served by the municipal water system have cut water use by 28% since the city's mandatory program took effect last March, said Jim Glancy, Lakewood's water superintendent.
