WATER USE GUIDELINES & CONSERVATION TIPS

In an effort to conserve water use, the Board of Commissioners is asking that customers comply with the voluntary outdoor water use guidelines.  These are offered for the purpose of water conservation and the utilizing of our resources wisely.  JBWD desires to stabilize water usage and avoid extreme peaks of usage during the summer since we are experiencing a very warm summer and extremely low precipitation.

WATER USE CONSERVATION GUIDELINES

Beginning July 26th, 2018 and continuing through September 3rd, 2018:

  • Please only water your outdoor plants and/or lawns between the hours of 6:00 a.m.- 12 Noon.  This is when plants efficiently utilize the water being applied.
  • Please do not water lawns or gardens on Saturdays or Sundays.
  • Please follow the water schedule below:
    • Those with even numbered addresses may water outdoors on even days.
    • Those with odd numbered addresses may water outdoors on odd days.
  • For those customers who are on the beach only on weekends:
    • Those with even numbered addresses may water outdoors on Saturday.
    • Those with odd numbered addresses may water outdoors on Sunday.
  • Please do not wash autos or trucks on Saturdays or Sundays.
  • Boats may still be washed after use.
  • Please use hoses with shut-off nozzles at all times when using water outdoors.
