Mandatory Water Ban

All irrigation of outdoor areas is prohibited except for watering by hand starting 8.15.22

  • The current weather conditions have been hot and dry for an extended period
  • The outdoor watering demand has placed us in peak demand mode the entire time
  • This is causing turbidity issues with the treated water, like August 2020
  • In peak demand mode we rely on our pumps for fire protection meaning that if the pumps fail there could be an immediate drop in pressure
  • This is not sustainable and exposes us to potential fire flow and water quality failures

For those with well water or well irrigation please post a conspicuous sign that is visible from the street so a violation does not erroneously get reported to this office

Please note that repeat violations may result in water shut offs
