Stage II Water Emergency  

(July 2016) Executive Ed Day declared a Stage II Water Emergency in Rockland. The restrictions include:

· 1. Properties with addresses ending in an odd number are instructed to water only on Mondays and Thursdays, and those with addresses ending in an even number only on Tuesdays and Fridays, between 2 AM and 6 AM for automatic, in-ground irrigation systems OR between 5 PM and 9 PM for manual sprinklers or hose fed irrigation. Watering in accordance with this two-day schedule is consistent with current best practice recommendations, and will be considered fully compliant, even though strict interpretation of Article V calls for alternate-day watering. 

· 2. Water may not be used to wash non-public paved surfaces such as sidewalks, driveways, garages, parking areas and patios.

· 3. With the exception of emergency vehicles, only commercial car washes can clean automobiles, trucks or trailers.

· 5. The use of flow-through (non-recycled) fountains, artificial waterfalls and reflecting pools is not allowed.

· 6. Water cannot be used for flushing sewers or hydrants except for emergencies. 

· 7. All water leaks must be repaired within 48 hours. 

· 8. No bulk water supply from any source within the county may be exported outside the county.
