[ARCHIVED] Summer Water Restrictions Are In Effect

Lawn Water Sprinkler spraying water

A reminder that the use of sprinklers is prohibited between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. daily.

Irrigation restrictions comply with state regulations and help enhance water conservation and environmental stewardship.

  • Lawn watering is only permitted before 11 a.m. and after 6 p.m. each day between May 1 and September 30. Lawn watering refers to in-ground irrigation systems, mechanical sprinklers, and unattended hoses. 
  • These restrictions do not apply to hand watering (hose must be attended) of plants, children's water toys when in use by children, and non-irrigation water use such as vehicle washing. 
  • Alternate sources for irrigation such as private wells or water from lakes and ponds are subject to the same lawn watering restrictions as users of the municipal water supply. 
  • New sod laid and trees planted in the calendar year are exempt. 
  • Additional water restrictions may be implemented if necessary to maintain normal domestic and fire flow requirements.
