Water Restriction Notice

IMPORTANT - OUTDOOR WATERING RESTRICTIONS IN NORTHVILLE

The City of Northville has introduced mandatory outdoor watering restrictions. The purpose of implementing these restrictions is to reduce our water use during peak hours of the day when the Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) has the most difficulty meeting water demands. By restricting outdoor water use, the City of Northville is able to receive approximately $130,000 in savings in its water rates from GLWA.

To maintain these savings, and more importantly to better assure that our City will receive the water it needs for more critical indoor water use, and firefighting, Northville will continue with these water restrictions.

Residents with underground irrigation systems (Automatic sprinkling systems) may only water their grass between the hours of 12:00 Midnight and 5:00am in the morning on odd or even days based on the address of your house. If your address ends on an even number, set your irrigation system to only water during the hours listed above on even numbered days. If your address ends with an odd number, set your irrigation system to only water during the hours listed above on odd numbered days.

For residents who do not have an automatic sprinkling system, but water their lawns and gardens manually with a hose, you may only water between the hours of 11:00am to 12:00 Midnight on odd or even days based on the address of your house.

Residents who ignore these restrictions will be committing a Civil Infraction and issued a ticket. Tickets will cost you $50 for the first offense and $100 for repeat offenses. Please remember it is very important to follow these restrictions in order to meet the City’s water system demands, to save money, and to conserve this essential natural resource.
