Mandatory Outdoor Water Restrictions
Outdoor Water Restrictions Imposed Due to High Demand.
Effective June 25, 2018, outdoor water restrictions are in effect. Residents are also asked to follow voluntary water conservation efforts. Due to minimal precipitation and high temperatures, water consumption is quickly increasing as it does this time every year. While the City’s water supplies are currently sufficient, high demand for water is creating system-wide fluctuations in water pressure and difficulty keeping adequate water storage. Most fluctuation in pressure is unnoticeable, yet the City of Dacono wants to ensure that water always remains at a safe level. This necessitates mandatory outdoor water restrictions.
Outdoor water restrictions will remain until September 1, 2018 or further notice.
Mandatory outdoor water restrictions:
Irrigation of landscaped areas, including residential and commercial lawns, gardens, and golf courses, with hose-end sprinklers or automatic irrigation systems shall be limited to the following:
- Even number street addresses Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays
- Odd numbered street addresses Saturdays, Mondays, and Wednesdays
- No landscape watering will be allowed on Fridays
- Irrigation of landscaped areas by all customers is prohibited between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. on designated watering days, and shall not exceed four hours total.
- Irrigation of landscaped areas is permitted on any day, except between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., if it is by means of a hand-held hose, a faucet filled bucket or water can of five gallons or less, or drip irrigation system.
Voluntary Water Conservation Efforts:
- Limit use of water to wash any motor vehicle, motorbike, boat, trailer, airplane or other vehicle to designated watering days. Vehicle washing is not recommended between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. To conserve water, such washing shall be done with a hand-held bucket or a hand-held hose equipped with a positive shutoff nozzle for quick rinses.
- Limit use of water to fill, refill, or add to any private indoor or outdoor swimming pool, wading pool, ornamental fountain and pond, or jacuzzi-type pool.
