Mandatory water use restrictions have been put in place by ALP for residents and businesses of Alexandria in compliance with the statewide Drought Warning Phase designation. ALP is asking all of its customers to follow odd/even-watering guidelines and to alter the times at which they water their lawns and gardens. If the last digit of your house number is an odd number, you may water on odd numbered calendar days. If the last digit is an even number, you may water on even numbered calendar days. ALP recommends sprinkling before 11:00 a.m. or after 5:00 p.m., when it is most efficient to avoid excessive evaporation.
They also suggest cutting out non essential outdoor use such as lawn irrigation, power washing buildings and cars and to avoid filling up pools.
