Village officials are once again asking residents to be water wise.
The village’s water restrictions are in effect until Sept. 30 to ensure the village’s water system has sufficient supply for fire protection as well as household needs.
Lawns can be watered on Tuesday and Saturday between 5 a.m. and 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. for addresses ending in even numbers. Odd-numbered addresses may water their lawns during the same hours on Wednesdays and Sundays.
Watering lawns is deemed a non-essential use of water, and other examples of non-essential use include watering gardens and washing boats and vehicles.
In the past, the village has offered tips to help residents further conserve water as the hot summer months settle in:
- Use a spring-loaded nozzle for watering to better control water flow and usage.
- Invest in water-conserving shower heads, and aerators on bathroom taps, and consider installing toilets that are water-conserving certified.
- Turn off the water while shaving, brushing teeth and washing dishes
- Only run your dishwasher and washing machine when you have full loads
