New Jersey officials have imposed water-use restrictions statewide to aid conservation amid possible shortages after superstorm Sandy.
Gov. Chris Christie said watering lawns and gardens will be banned for now, as will outdoor car-washing and washing pavement.
He says that 12 water treatment systems across the state have issued boil-water advisories.
Christie says people should also save water by taking shorter showers and other measures.

Once again we need to bundle up and watch for icy patches on roads and sidewalks.
The cold stays with us for a few more days. Today's high is in the upper 20s; tomorrow, high around freezing.
Looks like another storm system moving in to start the weekend. This one will likely bring a mix of snow, sleet, and rain. Stay tuned.
