The Highland City Council has recently taken measures to formally adopt an Ordinance governing outdoor watering. This ordinance sets forth days and times that watering can occur and also establishes a penalty for those in violation.
The new Ordinance is meant to not only help us conserve water, but also to help with the functionality of the PI system city-wide.
Even Numbered Street Address: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
Odd Numbered Street Address: Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday
No Sunday Residential Watering, allowing the storage facilities to fill.
Recommended watering hours from 6:00 p.m. - 10:00 a.m.
Penalties for those found in violation of the above watering schedule:
1st Violation: Highland City will issue a written warning via a door hanger and deliver a copy of the ordinance by mail.
2nd Violation: A $100 fine will be included on the next month utility bill
3rd Violation: Water service will be locked off and a $200 fee will be required to remove the lock and reinstate service.
Subsequent Violations will be subject to Section 13.30.380 of the Highland City Municipal Code.
A Hardship Waiver may be applied for in accordance with the ordinance guidelines. A copy of the ordinance is available for you to read by clicking the link below.
