Water Conservation Updates
Outdoor water use is about 70% of water use per capita. So let’s all pitch in and help save by reducing our outdoor watering. Our new schedule is as follows:
Addresses ending in Even #’s (0, 2, 4, 6, 8) Water on Tuesday & Saturday Addresses ending in Odd #’s (1, 3, 5, 7, 9) Water on Wednesday & Sunday
(The schedule listed in the City June newsletter that went out to homes with the utility bill at the beginning of the month was in error. )
Watering early in the morning is best, but be sure to finish up by 9 a.m. or water in the evening after 9 p.m. No watering on Monday, Thursday, or Friday. Remember to turn it off when it rains.
