Watering Restrictions

Per the Village Code, sprinkling restrictions go into effect May 15 until Sept 15 of and prohibit sprinkler use between the hours of 12 PM and 6 PM and limit watering to only odd/even days that correspond with the property’s address.  Addresses that end in an even number (0,2,4,6,8) are allowed to water outside on even calendar days. Addresses that end in an odd number (1,3,5,7,9) are allowed to water outside on odd calendar days. Hand-watering of garden, trees, shrubs, and flowers is permitted with buckets and sprinkling cans. These restrictions are a required of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) as part of the Village’s water allocation agreement, which allows us to pump water from Lake Michigan.
