The District has noticed very high levels of water usage.
We would like to let our customers and our new customers know that the District is implementing Mandatory Stage I Rationing with Restrictions to Once a Week Outside Watering due to the District's water consumption and capacity exceeding 85% of the daily maximum supply. It is very crucial that these guidelines be followed to keep from going into Stage II; where all irrigation and outside watering is prohibited. All non-essential water use shall be prohibited between the hours of 7 am and 8 pm.
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.
Unattended irrigation or sprinkler lawn watering is permitted only ONCE a week, on your designated day and NOT between 7 am and 8 pm, according to the last digit of your address. 0 and 1: Monday, 2 and 3: Tuesday, 4 and 5: Wednesday, 6 and 7: Thursday, & 8 and 9: Friday. Handheld hose watering of landscaping, shrubs and grass is permissible subject to the "time of day" restrictions. You may view the Mandatory Stage I Water Conservation letter on our website at sturdivantprogresswsc.com. Your cooperation in this effort is greatly appreciated!!
