Water Restrictions Remain in Effect for Elm Ridge!

August 1, 2023

Drought Warning

As we hit the hottest part of the summer with little rain in the forecast, we want to remind you of the mandatory watering restrictions in effect.  Many of you have received door hangers for multiple violations, resulting in fines on your water bills.  We urge you to please comply with the following restrictions:

Last address number is:

Even (0, 2, 4, 6, 8) may irrigate only on Sundays and Thursdays

Odd (1, 3, 5, 7, 9) may irrigate only on Wednesdays and Saturdays

NO outside irrigation on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays.

NO outside water use or irrigation between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.

On your first violation you will receive ONE warning. On your second violation, you will receive a fine on your water bill. Your third violation, we will have your water shut off and you will pay disconnect and reconnect fees and penalties to turn your water back on including ANOTHER fine.

Our goal is compliance! We would appreciate everyone’s cooperation!
