Outdoor watering is now limited to two days a week. Lawn watering is allowed two days a week.

Odd-number addresses may water Tuesdays and Saturdays. Even number addresses may water Wednesdays and Sundays.

The board unanimously decided to move residents to a more restrictive water conservation stage. No watering will be allowed from November through February.
