Update 11: Water Co. Eases Hours for Odd/Even Outdoor Watering
The following information is provided by New Jersey American Water
New Jersey American Water customers in Monmouth County remain under a schedule of odd/even outdoor watering, however the company today lifted the 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. time frame when outdoor watering was permitted. While customers are no longer restricted to watering within those set hours, the company advises customers to conserve water inside and outside of their homes, and to use water wisely. Significant increases in water demand could result in the reimplementation of stricter water use guidelines.
“Odd/Even watering has been used over the past few years in our Monmouth system and this is not unusual for systems that experience high seasonal demands related to lawn irrigation,” said Stephen P. Schmitt, vice president of operations for New Jersey American Water.
“To simplify this for our customers we are removing the additional time of day requirement. A time of day approach was used to allow time for the system to recover between the established demand periods.
“Our time of day usage monitoring over the past two weeks indicates that demands have stabilized. We thank our customers for their cooperation and assisting us in managing the water resources in Monmouth County.”
The odd/even watering schedule entails:
Outdoor water use on odd-numbered days of the month if your street address is an odd number (i.e., 23 Oak St., 7 Maple Ave.)
Outdoor water use on even-numbered days of the month if your street address is an even number (i.e., 6 Oak St., 354 Maple Ave.)
