Water Department


On March 15, 2015, the Board of Water and Sewer Commissioners at their regularly scheduled meeting, voted unanimously to recognize that we are currently no longer in a drought status and ask that our customers conserve water voluntarily from May 1st to September 30, 2023, and limit all outdoor watering to TWO DAYS per week and only after 5 p.m. or before 9 a.m.

Exemptions include:

  • Irrigation to establish a new lawn and new plantings during the months of May and September
  • Irrigation of public parks and recreation fields
  • For the production of food and fiber
  • To meet the core functions of a business


The Water Department maintains the municipal water supply so that there is a sufficient quantity of water to meet the needs of all of its customers, including the Fire Department, even on the most demanding day in the middle of summer.
