Due to a large increase in water usage and expected continuance of hot and dry conditions, the City of Kimball has issued a temporary watering ban for all system users effective Monday, June 14. Taking this action will not only conserve water, but reduce the stress on the water treatment plant while ensuring we are able to continue to provide necessary resources for consumption, fire protection, and other necessary water uses.
Guidelines to follow
Lawn watering and irrigation of athletic fields will be limited to all properties based on address numbers. Addresses ending in an even number can water lawns on even-numbered days, and addresses ending in an odd number can water lawns on odd-numbered days.
This action is taken to reduce peak water usage in areas served by the city’s system.
Additionally, because of how much water is lost to evaporation, watering is only permitted between 6 p.m. and 8 a.m.
Watering of newly sodded or seeded yards is exempt from the odd- and even-day restriction for two weeks.
• Activities such as car washing, water toys, and filling small kiddie swimming pools are exempt.
• Hand-watering of newly planted trees, flower pots, baskets, and vegetable gardens is permitted at any time.
• Any sprinkler system not served by the city’s system is exempt.
These restrictions will be until further notice.
