Outdoor water restriction
The City of Lowell and Lowell Charter Township today announced an odd-even outdoor water restriction for municipal customers that goes into effect immediately through Sept. 30.
The restriction does not affect water used for drinking and bathing purposes. It limits when residents and businesses can water their lawns and landscaping to minimize the burden on the city’s water treatment plant during the warmer months.
Under the restriction, outdoor watering is allowed on odd days for properties in the city and township with an address that ends in an odd number. For example, an address of 611 can water on the first, third, fifth, seventh, etc. day of the month. For properties with an even address – for example, 610 – outdoor watering is allowed on the second, fourth, sixth, eighth, etc. day of the month.
