​​​​​​​Water customers reminded to use odd/even watering schedule during hot summer months

With summer in full swing and temperatures sizzling, water demand is up. Peaking water demands tax the City’s water supply and can create lower water pressure. Water customers should be conscious of water use and practice odd/even watering for outside irrigation and watering practices to reduce the peak effect.

Under an odd/even watering schedule, houses with addresses ending with an odd number can water on odd numbered days; houses with addresses ending with an even number can water on even numbered calendar days. This alternating watering schedule significantly reduces the peak effect of everyone wanting to water at the same time. Odd/even irrigation practices and water conservation measures assures there is enough water to maintain system pressures and fight fires.
