The City of Evanston's water plant has resumed normal operations after water intake was restricted due to ice build-up earlier Friday.The city is still asking residents to continue voluntary conservation measures until at least one Saturday afternoon.

This involves curtailing non-essential water usage, such as laundry or running the dishwasher.

The city is recommending that customers store drinking water before going to bed Friday night in the unlikely event that the situation reoccurs over the weekend.
