Mandatory Water Conservation Notice

With the higher temperatures we have all been experiencing the last few days, our water system is also being taxed and we have exceeded our highest average daily usage by over 13% which is requiring us to increase our pumping levels higher than we have ever.  This is caused not only by more watering of yards, but also with folks coming to Sandy Point to get some relief from the heat, also driving up consumption.   This coupled with shortages in chlorine supply for water treatment dictate that we need to declare a “Water Emergency” and issue a “Mandatory Water Conservation Notice” which outlines measure to be taken and water waste fees for those that do not follow the conservation Measures.

Outdoor watering and irrigation shall be limited to every other day, with even-numbered addresses irrigating only on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday and odd-numbered addresses irrigating only on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday.  No outdoor watering or irrigation is authorized on Monday.

Outdoor watering and irrigation are further restricted to the hours between 5:00 p.m. and 10:00 a.m. and for a period of no longer than 30 minutes.

Much of the enforcement will be complaint-based.  The fees for violations, as approved by the Sandy Point Board of Directors.

1st Offense:  Written Warning
2nd Offense: $50.00
