Pressurized Irrigation Water Restrictions:
The restrictions are as follows:
As always, NO watering is allowed from 10:00 am-6:00 pm on any day.
This one right now is on a voluntary basis. We hope our residents will follow the recommended watering schedule to help conserve the water. We are requesting our residents to water their yards every other day. This rotation will have you watering three to four times a week as a maximum. If your house number is an odd number, you will water on odd calendar days. If your house number is an even number, you will water on even calendar days. We recognize that we will have a hiccup with those months that have 31 days (May, July, Aug). We are asking that the 31st of those months be recognized as a NO WATER DAY. The City will send out reminders as those days approach. We will inform our citizens if we find that greater restrictions are necessary.
Please do your part to help us conserve!
for a copy of the Penalty Provisions of the Pressure Irrigation Water Service Ordinance.
1. A written notice shall be sent for the first violation. Notice is deemed sufficient if left with a resident over age fourteen or with a business occupant of the premises, or if left on the front door of the premises.
2. A second violation by a residential user within the same calendar year shall subject the user to a $100 penalty and the valve shall be turned off and tagged. The valve may not be turned back on until the fee is paid. Notice of the penalty shall be provided as outlined in subsection (1) and added to the City Utility Bill for the premises.
3. A third violation within the same calendar year shall subject the user to a $750 penalty and the pressure irrigation service shall be metered and a metered rate paid for the water used. Once a meter is installed, it will remain with the property and the owners/users causing its installation shall pay a metered rate each year thereafter. If the owner/user moves the pressure irrigation rate will revert back to the pre-violation rate. Notice of the penalty shall be provided as outlined in subsection (1) and added to the City Utility Bill for the premises. The person(s) violating must appear before the City Council and obtain their approval to have water restored.
4. A fourth violation will also result in the termination of the service for the remainder of the irrigation season.
