Odd/Even Watering Program in Effect June - September
In order to proactively manage city water resources during the peak summer demand, the city has implemented a voluntary odd/even watering (irrigation) program for all residential, commercial and public customers.  The program will remain in effect through September 30:

  • Water customers with addresses ending in an odd number may water/irrigate outdoors on Saturdays, Mondays & Wednesdays only
  • Water customers with addresses ending in an even number may water/irrigate outdoors on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays only
  • Friday is a non-watering day for everyone, allowing the water system to refill city reservoirs.
  • Exceptions are granted for vegetable gardens, newly planted lawns, and potted or hanging plants.  These may be watered as needed to prevent damage and protect your investment.  Best practices to use the water efficiently is always encouraged. 

During the peak of the summer season, from June through September, Battle Ground water utility customers use nearly 3 million gallons of water per day – more than twice the typical amount of water used during the rest of the year.   The difference highlights the significant amount of water being used for outdoor applications, and the need to proactively manage the city’s water resources.
