Mandatory Watering Restrictions in Effect June 1st through September 15th
The City of Ferndale has implemented mandatory watering restrictions effective June 1st through September 15th. Residents with odd numbered street addresses are mandated to water only on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. Residents with even numbered street addresses water only Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Mondays are non-watering days to allow the City’s reservoirs to recharge after the weekend.
The mandatory watering restrictions do not apply to the following situations:
- Drip irrigation systems or handheld watering
- Watering of flower and/or vegetable gardens
- Watering of outdoor potted plants and hanging baskets
- Watering of newly planted lawns/landscaping
Following these restrictions will help residents save money on their utility bill, reduce the impact on the environment and help ensure the City’s utility system runs strong throughout the hot season.
