Wednesday July 1st, 2020: 

Jefferson Water and Sewer District announced an outdoor watering prohibition for all residents effective immediately.

They posted on their Facebook page.  Some residents received robo-calls, others emails.  Some have not received any notice.

The notice was vague.

There was no warning or previous notice, no discussion, no real reason and no end date.

Fines of a minimum of $200 have been threatened.  How will these be enforced?  How will this be monitored? 

It is July, the hottest/dryest month and people are home due to a pandemic.  Kids need to be able to run through sprinklers or play with baby pools.  Lawns, trees and flowers need watering.  Many new residents have just received sod and landscaping.  This prohibition will cost homeowners thousands of dollars during a already difficult financial time.

Jefferson Water is already some of the worst quality (tested by an independent EPA approved lab) in the State with the highest price.

This BAN is UNACCEPTABLE!

WE DEMAND THAT THE WATER PROHIBITION BE LIFTED IMMEDIATELY!
