The Town of Indian Head

Residents are again asked to follow the odd/even watering schedule for tasks such as watering lawns and large gardens, washing siding, etc. This odd/even schedule is being proactively implemented to reduce the chance of requiring a strict water restriction during increased summer demand and while we drill an updated well.

The residential watering schedule means homes with odd numbered civic addresses can water on odd days (1st, 3rd, 5th etc.) and homes with an even numbered civic address can water on even days (2nd, 4th, 6th etc.).

The bulk water schedule allows RM residents to haul water for household purposes on all days of the week and for agricultural purposes on odd days only.

Please do you part to help conserve water! All efforts help to ensure an ample supply of water is readily available to emergency services and to residents for personal use.

Water Conservation Tips:

  • Limit laundry cycles to full loads.
  • Adjust your sprinklers so you’re only watering your lawn and garden, not the road and sidewalk.
  • Water lawns and gardens early in the morning or later in the evening when temperatures are cooler and evaporation is minimized.
  • Adjust automatic sprinkler systems to match the odd/ even schedule for your residence. Inspect systems for leaks.
  • Use a nozzle on the end of hoses to save roughly 5-7 gallons each minute your hose is on.
  • Adjust your lawnmower to a higher setting. The taller lawn provides shade to the roots and promotes soil moisture retention.
