Lincoln Imposes New Water Restrictions

Lincoln Water

The City of Lincoln is set to impose new water restrictions due to the historic drought. The stage Two Water Alert encourages residents to comply with mandatory watering restrictions.

Limitations on landscape watering require that watering only to be done three times a week within the set hours of 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.  Residents will now have to follow watering instructions set by the property address.  Odd-numbered addresses will only be allowed to water on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Those with even-numbered addresses can only water on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. There is a ban enforcement on hosing of landscape surfaces, unless for health and safety reasons.

Restaurants are being asked to serve water to customers only upon request during the extreme drought.

Lincoln’s restrictions follow similar measures implemented by the State Water Resources Control Board which adopted a $500 penalty for acts of water waste in July.

Consumers are asked to not to waste water in situations like excessively watering landscaping where runoff is visible, fix leaks within 12 hours of the breakage, and washing a car without a shutoff valve. Other ways to cut personal water use is to shut off faucet while brushing teeth, shorten showers, and run dishwashers or laundry machines when completely full.
