City’s mandatory watering schedule begins June 1st

Last year, City of Ferndale officials made a startling revelation mid-summer. Water reservoirs that had previously remained full year-round were showing less than full levels following record-breaking warm weather. Emergency meetings of city staff and city councilmembers were held and it was decided to, for the first time in recent history, to switch from a voluntary to a mandatory watering schedule for city property owners.

This year in March, the Ferndale City Council discussed and approved implementing a mandatory watering schedule again this year from June 1st to September 15th.

During the restricted water use period, city water service customers with odd-numbered addresses are to water only on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays while even-numbered addresses are to water on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Watering is also restricted to after 5pm and before 10am and for a period of no longer than 30 minutes.
