BRIGHTON — While the city of Brighton will not be looking at additional drought restrictions this summer, residents will still have to abide by the city’s watering schedule. 

“We still have a watering schedule in place and that just started going out in the water bills,” city spokeswoman Kristen Chernosky said. “So depending on your address depends on what days you can water. That’s just the standard watering schedule that we have in place.”

Chernosky said residents are allowed to water every third days. After receiving the watering schedule, residents should look at it to determine what days they are allowed to water. She said watering is not allowed between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. now through October.

“Of course if they can conserve even more that would be great. We’re always wanting to conserve water when possible.”
