Summer irrigation quadruples average monthly water demand. Three of our wells have been taken off-line and will remain off-line throughout 2022. In order to meet the water needs of all our communities, summer irrigation demand must be reduced, especially at peak early morning hours. Therefore, water conservation is a must.
This plan will be in effect permanently for the remainder of this lawn sprinkling season and going forward for future years.
Remember, here are 4 important ways you can help us get through this rough time and avoid water shortages.
- Cut back watering times for each zone by 5 minutes. This will save 20% or more on overall usage.
- Follow the time schedule for your watering zone. See map and legend below.
- Always follow Nassau County’s Odd/Even Watering Ordinance
-No watering between 10 AM and 4 PM
-Odd numbered homes water only on odd numbered days
-Even and non-numbered homes water only on even numbered days
- Always check for broken sprinkler heads or leaks that waste water.
Thank you for your cooperation and for being part of the solution!
