April 28, 2022

MANDATORY WATER RESTRICTIONS IN EFFECT MAY 1

Article 13-9 of the Jerome Town Code provides that Level 1 water restrictions go into effect automatically as of May 1 each year and continue through September 30, requiring certain water conservation measures.

Effective May 1, the Town is operating under “Demand Reduction Strategy I – ‘Water Alert.’” Per the Town Code, this strategy mandates the following:

  • Water shall be conserved both inside and outside the home or business using best practices available to minimize waste. No person shall waste water.
  • Outdoor water use shall not occur between the hours of 9 AM to 5 PM.
  • Vehicle washing shall only be undertaken with a bucket and hose with a shut off nozzle or other water saving devices such as a pressure washer.
  • Cooling of outdoor areas with water or misting devices is prohibited.
  • Restaurants shall serve water to customers upon request only and shall display table tents or other types of public notice to this effect.
  • Construction projects shall use only reclaimed water or effluent or supply their own water for on-site use and dust control.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
