Summer Watering Rules


Watering restrictions apply to all users of the Town’s treated water from May 1 through September 30.

 Addresses ending in odd numbers may irrigate only on odd number calendar days, and addresses ending in even numbers may irrigate only on even number calendar days. For example:

Watering is further limited to a maximum of four (4) hours on the allotted day, between 12 midnight and 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. to midnight. No watering is allowed on any day between 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.

 These restrictions apply only to the irrigation of lawns, trees, shrubs and other vegetation planted in the ground.

 An exemption permit is available for the purpose of watering newly installed landscaping, lawns and trees. This exemption will allow a customer to water during the no-use period and will be issued by the Town for a period of 30 days. Only one exemption permit may be issued per calendar year.

 Water use restrictions do not apply to children’s games or activities that use water so long as at least one child is actively participating in the game or activity while the water is being used.
