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 word is that a lot of early morning tickets have been written , so be careful .

Friday morning watering appears to be happening in violation the Stage 2 Water restrictions  

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. My neighbors pay no attention to the rules.
    I walk the dog early AM and see the nice lush green lawns watering whenever they want.
    If the sprinklers are not on, its obvious they were due to the water all over the street in front.
    Even on Mondays… when nobody is supposed to water.
    I keep hearing that tickets are written, but stricter enforcement is necessary.
    Perhaps they can post a list of the violators…
    OR have a CELL PHONE # assigned to a water dept employee so we don’t have to call the police who are busy with other things.

  2. That’s amazing wasting water at the train station like that’s real important. Who’s in charge of the sprinklers. Shut them off we’re going into E wave we’re going to need the water and the water pressure. So stupid

  3. Obviously someone in the Parks Dept is in charge of the water timers. Shut those damn thing off immediately. We’re going to be in heat wave for the next week not important shut down now. If I see them come on tomorrow morning We are gonna call and 12 news. We are not playing any games anymore with you.Shut it down.
    And especially your people that have the fake well signs in front of your house. We know you are.

  4. Do as I say not as I do

  5. Rules are for the little people
