Water Conservation

With continued heat and dry conditions, the Village reminds all residents of the policies in place for water conservation, including restricted watering hours.  These policies are in place for everyone's benefit.

From May 15 to September 15, residents are permitted to use outdoor water based on an even/odd system. The last digit of an address determines the day. If an address ends in an even number, the resident can water on even calendar days; if the address ends in an odd number, the resident can water on odd calendar days.

Outdoor water usage is permitted between 4 a.m.and 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. and 11 p.m. on your watering day.

Watering at peak times of the day is inefficient and wasteful due to evaporation. In addition, restricting the hours of outdoor water usage allows the Village's water tanks to refill.
Violators of the water restrictions are subject to a $50 fine.

NOTE : The use of water collected from rain barrels is not subject to the Village's Water Restrictions and Conservation policies.
