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.

  1. “Compliance with the Stage II restrictions will reduce the likelihood that more severe controls will be needed ” It will also allow us to ask for a rate increase because we have not sold enough water. Thank you for your patronage but you really don’t have alternative. Ridgewood Water

  2. It is quite ridiculous that we have water restrictions given the amount of rain this spring. It obviously exposes that we do not have “droughts” but rather, our infrastructure does not capture enough water. The reservoir levels are fuller than full.

  3. Sell Ridgewood water.

  4. Stage 2 and your moving into the elks?
    F&*$ Y*&!

  5. I see th sprinkler systems going full blast during the rain … I thought it was a requirement to have rain sensors to prevent this waste.

  6. I believe it is a requirement and suppose that enforcement is just not being done.

  7. Get a life.. Sprinkler troll. We have better things in town to worry about

  8. Well…ridgewood water needs neefs to begin supplementing their internal supply with outsourcing. I thot years ago a hook up to Suez was completed to do that in order to avoid restrictions. They are doing nothing to resolve this supply and demand situation. I drive past the reservoirs in Ringwood and see the banks overflowing!! They said it themselves…their infrastructure cant supply the customers needs/usage. Its time that the municipal govnts of each town take over this public utility and end Ridgewoods monopoly and self seeking interests!!!!
