Watering restrictions are in place in Kingsville running through September 30th.

The watering restrictions include watering your lawn or garden based on your house number. Odd homes should water on odd calendar days and even numbered homes on even days. Watering times are between 5:00am and 8:00am and 6:00 pm and midnight.

Each year, the warmer weather is associated with a higher demand on water systems as families fill their pools, gardeners water their vegetables, shrubs, lawns, and people wash their cars more frequently. During hot summer months, water consumption within the Union Water service area increases significantly, especially between the hours of 12:00pm and 6:00pm.

During these peak water demand times, the town says that increased stress on the drinking water system can result in low pressures and insufficient reserves required for fire protection can therefore pose a potential risk to public safety.
