With the coming summer hot weather, excessive lawn watering will put a strain on the Township of Schreiber’s 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.
