El Reno Re- Implements Water Rationing Program

Posted: Updated:


EL RENO, Oklahoma -- The City of El Reno is re- implementing water rationing measures beginning July 20.

Citizens are being asked to implement an odd/even numbered watering program. All citizens whose homes have even numbered addresses are asked to water on even dates. Citizens whose homes have odd numbered addresses are asked to water on odd dates.

This system applies to yard sprinklers and irrigation systems. Hand watering will be allowed by all citizens on any day of the week.

El Reno is also implementing water rationing procedures for irrigation on some of its recreational facilities.

Below are additional tips to help citizens maximize their water usage for lawns and landscaping.

• Water in the early morning or evening hours when the weather is coolest. Watering during the heat of the day maximizes evaporation and the amount of water that will reach a lawn and/or landscaping.

• Make sure the sprinkler is pointed so that water always reaches the yard, not the street or sidewalk.

• Watering in heavy wind will also lead to less water reaching the desired destination.
