Water Conservation Ordinance

*** Permanent Water Conservation Ordinance is in Effect*** Lawn/vegetation watering with sprinklers is permitted every other day at any time according to you house number. If you have an even address you may water your lawn or other vegetation on even calendar days. If you have an odd house number you may water your lawn or other vegetation on odd calendar days. New Seed/Sod: Newly seeded or sodded lawns are exempt from the odd / even restrictions and may be watered at any time for 14 days. Homeowner must register with the water department before watering.

These restrictions have been enacted due to lack of water pressure and volume caused by well-pumping restrictions imposed by the NJ Department of Environmental Protection.
