Germantown issues ban on lawn watering

Aug. 29, 2013

The Germantown Department of Public Works has declared a lawn watering ban effective immediately.

Residents are being asked to limit their water use by following an odd-even schedule. Residents with an odd address are asked to water their lawns only on odd days of the week. Even-numbered homes can water on even days until further notice.

The DPW also asks that residents on private wells voluntarily restrict lawn watering to conserve water resources that may be shared by neighbors.

The DPW has issued the ban due to extreme demand placed on the village's water system. These restrictions only apply to the watering of lawns. They do not apply to other outside uses such as tree or garden watering.

For information regarding the ban, call Germantown Department of Public Works at (262) 250-4721.
