Outdoor Watering Restrictions


Considering recent weather patterns and the time of year, the seasonal outdoor water use restriction limiting lawn watering to one day per week has been lifted. Beginning October 1st, we will return to our odd/even outdoor water use restriction, which will remain in effect until further notice. We anticipate a new Water Management Act permit will be issued soon and will update customers on what restrictions may be in place for the 2024 growing season.

For now, all outdoor water uses will follow our typical odd/even restriction. Even addresses may use water outdoors Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday while odd addresses may use water outdoors Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. No outdoor water use is allowed on Mondays. Any violations will be subject to a fine of up to $200 per incident.

We thank you for your continued cooperation and any water conservation efforts that you observe. It takes the entire community to enable a safe, sufficient, and reliable supply of water. Updates on the status of our outdoor water use restrictions will be communicated on our website, through our WaterSmart program, and via Facebook and Twitter @ActonWater.

With the end of the irrigation season upon us, here is a reminder to prepare your irrigation system or other outdoor water systems for the colder months ahead. Properly winterizing your system can minimize freeze damage and associated costly repairs come springtime. It’s also always a great time to check for leaks and broken heads.
