Local Water Restrictions

With the coming summer hot weather, excessive lawn watering will put a strain on the Township of Schreibers water production capabilities at the water treatment plant.

At this time, we are asking for your cooperation in using alternate day lawn watering even-numbered houses water on even-numbered days and odd-numbered houses water on odd number days.

Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated.

For further information, please call Mitchell G Fairservice, Township Director of Operations, at 824-2711 Ext 230.

Thank you – Public Works Department

Tips for effective lawn watering:

  • Do your lawn watering early in the morning or late evening.  Watering in the afternoon will only see most of your water evaporate in the hot sun.
  • Water deeply and infrequently.  Deep watering promotes a deep root system while over-watering (daily) promotes shallow root growth, making your lawn less hardy.
  • Water an area of your lawn for 15-20 minutes before moving your sprinkler to a new area.

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Township of Schreiber has decided to cancel this year’s Heritage Days festival. Following increased and overwhelming concerns about the COVID-19 virus, we felt this was the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented global situation. We are very disappointed that we are unable to hold this event for our community. But we know it’s the right decision based on the information we have today. Thank you for your cooperation.
