Twice-a-week watering still in effect

Even though we are in the winter season, the City’s twice-a-week water conservation measure is still in effect.  The year-round ordnance is consistent with measures in many other area communities, with outdoor water days determined by street numbers.

  • Even - Residents with addresses ending in an even number can use automatic sprinkler systems on Sundays and Thursdays.
  • Odd - Addresses ending in an odd number can use automatic sprinkler systems on Saturdays and Wednesdays.  
  • Buildings or facilities with multiple addresses will water based on their lowest street address number.

Addresses that continue to be in violation, will be mailed a formal notice.  A Municipal Court citation will be issued after that.  Learn more about twice-a-week watering, and how to keep lawns healthy year-round.
