Summer Watering Plan
Last fall, the City Council approved an ordinance that enacts mandatory outdoor water user restrictions in the summer months.

Mandatory Water Restrictions
Starting on May 1 and lasting through September 30, the following restrictions apply to outdoor water use for the City of Georgetown water customers.

Follow this schedule for irrigation systems and sprinklers, based on the last digit of your address number:

Odd addresses

Watering is not permitted during the day from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Watering with a hand-held hose or bucket can be done any time of day.

The use of irrigation systems and/or automatic sprinklers (i.e. not hand held) is not allowed at any time of day on Monday.

Violations of these restrictions may result in fines.
