Outdoor Watering Schedule


Effective May 6, 2011:
By Ordinance the normal watering schedule from May 1st through November 1st each year allows us to water as follows:

· Odd numbered addresses (street number ends in 1,3,5,7,9)
may only water on: SUNDAYS, WEDNESDAYS, & FRIDAYS

· Even numbered addresses (street number ends in 0,2,4,6,8)
may only water on: TUESDAYS, THURSDAYS & SATURDAYS

· All outdoor watering must take place BEFORE 9 am and AFTER 6pm
(This conserves water by reducing evaporation)
WATERING IS NOT PERMITTED ON MONDAYS. THANK YOU.

You will find a link to the entire Water Conservation Ordinance on the 
       City Clerk's page.

 

   This is the regular watering schedule as set forth in the City's Code of Ordinances, section 28-03-033. Tier rate billing is still in effect. You will be billed based on your consumption. Wasting water is prohibited. 

   Residents should be aware that the ordinance contains rationing provisions that become stricter if the City's water capacities approach dangerously low levels. Should water rationing become necessary, and other conservation methods become required, the City will inform residents through public announcements, mailings, or other means.
