Ridgewood NJ, This is a reminder that Stage II water restrictions remain in effect.
Odd numbered addresses may irrigate on Tuesdays and Saturdays only.
Even numbered addresses may irrigate on Wednesdays and Sundays only.
No irrigation is allowed on Mondays, Thursdays, or Fridays.
Irrigation shall be performed before 10 am or after 6 pm, to limit evaporation.
EXCEPTIONS: Irrigation is allowed any day (within time restrictions noted above) if utilizing a hand held hose or drip irrigation, or if a smart watering exemption is obtained from the office of Ridgewood Water.
The restriction level is at Stage II because in the summer water is consumed at a greater rate than the Ridgewood Water supply system can sustain, thus reducing the amount of water in reserve for firefighting and other emergencies.
Compliance with the Stage II restrictions will reduce the likelihood that more severe controls will be needed. We thank our customers for their understanding and support.
