The Town of Jerome will be entering Stage II Water Reduction Strategies on Tuesday, June 26th.
If the Demand Reduction Strategy I fails to return the Cleopatra Hill tanks to their normal state, and the water tanks drop to under 90% full for 48 consecutive hours, Demand Reduction Strategy II will be implemented to return the tanks to their normal state. Strategy II includes all points in Strategy I and also mandates:
- Outdoor water usage shall be restricted to the hours between 6:00 PM and 6:00 AM. Watering days shall be restricted: properties with even numbered addresses may irrigate only on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday; properties with odd numbered addresses may irrigate only on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Where there is no discernible address, the even numbered address schedule shall apply. No irrigation shall be allowed on Monday, except by the Town. No more than 450 gallons per site per 24-hour period shall be permitted. For those with hose and/or sprinkler systems, a maximum of 45 minutes per watering is permitted; for those with a low flow drip system, four hours is permitted.
- No vehicle washing or watering down of sidewalks, decks, parking areas, patio or other similar surfaces shall take place at any time.
- Water shall not be added to fountains, water feataures, recreational swimming pools, spas or wading pools holding more than one hundred, (100) gallons, except to support animals and maintain fish ponds.
- Transient lodging facilities shall wash customers’ linens if a stay is in excess of one night, upon request only, and the facility shall display a notice to that effect.
