[ARCHIVED] Water Sprinkling Restrictions May 15 to September 15

Village of Westmont
Date Issued: May 17, 2018

Annually, the Village of Westmont has water sprinkling restrictions beginning May 15 and continuing through September 15.  The restrictions only apply to mechanical sprinkling of lawns and gardens.  Sprinkling by hand is allowed.

“The purpose of the sprinkling restrictions is to ensure that our community water supply maintains a safe quantity in our water reserves,” said Public Works Director Mike Ramsey.  “The ordinance does allow for hand sprinkling during restriction hours.”

ODD-NUMBERED street addresses should sprinkle 
between the hours of 7 and 11 a.m., and between the hours of 7 and 11 p.m.
on dates of the month having an odd number.

EVEN-NUMBERED street address should sprinkle
between the hours of 7 and 11 a.m., and between the hours of 7 and 11 p.m. 
on dates of the month having an even number.

The watering of trees, shrubs, flowers and gardens shall be permitted at all times provided such watering is by means of handheld devices and only with such devices designed and intended for such purpose.  

New sod and seed lawns shall be water by permit only. Such permit shall be valid for a period of three weeks from the date sod or seed is installed, and shall not be renewed. 

During any period during which an extreme shortage exists in the village water supply, as determined by the village president, no water from village water mains shall be used for any purpose outside a residence, business or other building other than for the extinguishment of fires or other emergencies.

Violation of this ordinance may result in a fine. If you have further questions or concerns, please contact Westmont Public Works at 630-981-6270.
