Francis Del Gallo, town board supervisor, issued a water conservation advisory earlier today, July 8, for Rotterdam as a precautionary measure due to the recent heat wave.
Any unnecessary water usage must be postponed until further notice. The restriction is planned to be lifted as soon as possible and a spokeswoman for Del Gallo said it should be lifted early next week or sooner.
Today, July 13, Del Gallo lifted the water conservation advisory and asked residents within consolidated Water Districts No. 5 and No. 3 to return to standard sprinkling regulations.
Even addresses in these two districts can use lawn sprinklers on even days from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The same rules imply inversely to odd number addresses.
