Water Conservation In order to help maintain a sufficient amount of water for drinking and fire protection the Village of Plainfield in 1999 enacted a year round ordinance that allows outside water use as follows:  Lawn sprinkling for even numbered addresses on even numbered calendar days between the hours of 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. and/or 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.  Lawn sprinkling for odd numbered addresses on odd numbered calendar days between the hours of 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. and/or 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.  The watering of gardens, trees, shrubs, and flowers (by use of a hand held hose or watering can) is permitted any time. New Sod or Seed  The first day sod or seed is placed; the property owner may water the sod/seed for any eight (8) hours.  For the next nine (9) days, the property owner may water the sod or seed every day between the hours of 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.  Following the first ten (10) days, the odd/even watering restrictions will apply. If you have underground sprinklers installed, please advise the contractor of these times so the timers may be set for the appropriate days and times. The Public Works Department recommends the following techniques to get the maximum benefit from your outdoor water use:  Water in the morning. This gives plants a chance to dry off before evening, thus discouraging many plant ailments.  Do not cut grass too short in hot weather. Allow grass to grow to three inches in height. This provides shade for roots and helps minimize water loss.  Position sprinkling devices so as not to water paved areas. Move sprinkling devices periodically and lower the water pressure to reduce runoff. Penalties for watering violations are as follows:  The first watering violation at the residence receives a yellow warning notice.  After a residence receives a second yellow watering violation notice, a $75.00 fine is generated and sent to the home by the Police Department.  Subsequent violations at the residence generate a $75.00 fine for each offense. If you have any questions about this water conservation measure please contact the Public Works Department at 815-436-3577. 11/08
