Mandatory Stage I Water Conservation
April 22, 2021
Re: Mandatory Stage I Rationing with Restrictions to ONCE a Week Outside Watering is in Effect until Further Notice:
Effective April 22, 2021:
Sturdivant Progress WSC has implemented Stage I of the District’s Drought Contingency Plan due to the District’s water consumption and capacity exceeding 85% of the daily maximum supply. The District’s goal is to reach a20% reduction in total use. It is very crucial that these guidelines be followed to keep from going into Stage II; where all irrigation and outside watering is prohibited.
The water conservation measures to be implemented are as follows:
- Initiate mandatory conservation measures, where possible.
- All “non-essential water use” shall be PROHIBITED between the hours of 7 a.m. and 8 p.m.
“Non-essential water use” is defined as washing windows, siding, eaves and roofs of buildings; washing driveways, streets, curbs and gutters; vehicle washing; unattended irrigation or sprinkler lawn watering of landscaping, shrubs and grass; draining and filling swimming pools; and flushing water systems.
Handheld hose watering of landscaping, shrubs and grass is permissible subject to the “time-of-day” restrictions established herein.
- Unattended irrigation or sprinkler lawn watering is permitted only ONCE a week on your designated day and is NOT allowed between the hours of 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. according to the last digit of your street address.
0 and 1: Monday 2 and 3: Tuesday 4 and 5: Wednesday
6 and 7: Thursday 8 and 9: Friday
No outside watering on Saturday or Sunday OR between the hours of 7 a.m. and 8 p.m.
Stage I Outside Residential Water Use Enforcement Policy:
1stViolation-The member will be notified by a written notice of their specific violation. Excessive water users could face a rate increase.
2ndViolation -Installation of a flow restricting device in the customer’s service line to limit the amount of water through the meter in a 24-hourperiod.
