Staff report

With the heat holding over

90 degrees for the weekend and expecting to stay above the 80s for the next few weeks, the City of Hastings put out a reminder of the wa

_ tering restrictions.

Effective Dates: May 15th to September 1st Day of Month Restric


tions: Properties with odd

_ numbered addresses are allowed to water on odd


numbered days, and proper _

ties with even

_ numbered addresses are allowed to water on even

_ numbered days. For example, if your house number is 802, you are permitted to water on June

20th but not on June 21st.

Time of Day Restrictions: Additionally, during the odd/even days when proper _ ties are permitted to water lawns, watering is prohibited between the hours of 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Exemptions: A two _ week exemption from the odd/even sprinkling ban may be granted for newly planted sod, grass or landscaping. Other exemptions may be granted upon evaluation and recommendation of the Hast

_ ings Utility Superintendent.

If you have any questions about the watering restric

_ tions, please call our Public Works Department at 651



_ 2334.

The importance of follow _

ing these restrictions is to en

_ sure the water table can keep up with demand. Watering in the heat of the day is not pro

_ ductive because much of the water evaporates before being absorbed into the ground.
