As we continue our efforts to conserve water the Village of North Aurora has amended its "Water Conservation Ordinance. Effective September 5, 2012 the North Aurora Village Board recently passed an Ordinance that amends the North Aurora Municipal Code, Section 13.28.040 subsection A (Watering Restrictions) in its entirety as follows:
| ||13.28.040 Watering Restrictions|
|A.||No village water may be used for the restricted watering uses|
described in Section 13.28.030 of this Chapter except between
the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. and between the hours of
6:00 p.m and 9:00 p.m. subject to the following restrictions, or
as otherwise allowed in this section:
|i.||All properties with even-numbered street addresses may use|
water for restricted watering purposes on even-numbered days
of the month only;
|ii.||All properties with odd-numbered street addresses may use|
water for restricted watering purposes on odd-numbered days
of the month only.
Individuals that do not comply with the provisions of the Water Conservation Ordinance will be subject to fines. Water conservation guidelines carry benefit to both Village residents and Village staff. With water conservation measures in place, Village staff are better able to monitor and remedy situations where individuals are wasting our community's water. The time window for allowable watering is considered to be ideal for Village residents due to lower evaporation rates and less burn-off during established watering hours.
