Jerome declares Stage 2 water restrictions
Due to the continued dry conditions, the Town of Jerome is in Stage 2 water restrictions. This means outdoor water use is restricted to the hours between 6 pm and six am. Watering days are also restricted. Properties with even number addresses may only irrigate on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Irrigation days for properties with odd numbered addresses are Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. No irrigation is allowed on Mondays, except by the Town. Vehicle washing or watering down of sidewalks, decks, parking areas, patios or other similar surfaces is restricted. Town of Jerome officials are hopeful once monsoons begin, restrictions can be reduced. In the meantime, residents and visitors are asked to do all they can to conserve water.
