Carlton implements odd-even watering

CARLTON -- Residents and businesses can use outside water only every other day under Stage 1 water restrictions implemented Thursday.

Public Works Director Bryan Burham said the restrictions are designed o reduce demand on the city water system, lowering the risk of a water shortage or decreased water quality.

The odd-even watering will continue until further notice. Residents with addresses that end in an odd number can water lawns on odd-numbered days, such as Oct. 1 or 7; those with even-numbered addresses can water lawns only on even-numbered days, such as Sept. 30 or Oct. 6.

For more information, call Carlton City Hall, at 503-852-7575.
