Water Restriction Notice

IMPORTANT - NEW OUTDOOR WATERING RESTRICTIONS IN NORTHVILLE

Last summer the City of Northville introduced mandatory outdoor watering restrictions, and Northville residents met this new challenge by responding positively to these new restrictions. The purpose of implementing these new restrictions was to reduce our water use during peak hours of the day when Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) had the most difficulty in meeting domestic water demands. By restricting outdoor water use, the City of Northville was able to receive approximately $130,000 in savings in its water rates from DWSD in 2014/15. This is really good news. Congratulations Northville….

To maintain these savings, and more importantly to better assure that our City will receive the water it needs for more critical indoor water use, Northville will continue with these water restrictions through the summer of 2017.

Residents with underground irrigation systems (Automatic sprinkling systems) may only water their grass between the hours of 12:00 Midnight and 5:00am in the morning on odd or even days based on the address of your house. If your address ends on an even number, set your irrigation system to only water during the hours listed above on even numbered days. If your address ends with an odd number, set your irrigation system to only water during the hours listed above on odd numbered days.

For residents who do not have an automatic sprinkling system, but water their lawns and gardens manually with a hose, you may only water between the hours of 11:00am to 12:00 Midnight on odd or even days based on the address of your house.

Just like last year, residents who ignore these restrictions will be committing a Civil Infraction and issued a ticket. Tickets will cost you $50 for the first offense and $100 for repeat offenses, so please, it is very important to continue following these restrictions.
