Sulphur reminds residents about water restrictions

The following is a news release from the City of Sulphur:

Mayor Chris Duncan would like to remind residents that the peak months for water usage are May – September of each year.  As set forth in our Water Conservation Ordinance, the schedule for outside watering during these peak months is as follows:

  • Odd numbered addresses water on Tuesday, Thursdays and Saturdays
  • Even numbered addresses water on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays
  • The designated times for lawn watering are from midnight to 2:00 p.m.
  • There is no watering on Monday, however exceptions are allowed for hand-watering, newly planted sod, landscaping and ground cover (30 day exemption) and businesses that require water to operate, such as plant nurseries and commercial car washes

According to Mayor Duncan, "The citizens of Sulphur have always cooperated with the City's request to conserve water in an effort to alleviate pressure problems.  He feels this year will be no different.  We hope everyone follows this program, but there are some consequences for those who do not.  Fines can range from $50 to $500 depending on the number of offenses."

Mayor Duncan stated, "Water usage records reflect that during peak periods, the City's water plants have an increased production from 3 million gallons of water a day to 7 million gallons per day.  The resulting low water pressure is a major threat to fire-fighting efforts and could increase the risk of contamination of our water system.  So, we ask everyone to be part of the solution…..conserve water."
