Oconomowoc is currently in a drought. Homeowners please water newly planted trees and street trees. Newly planted trees are trees that have been planted within the last 3 or 4 years. Approximately 10 gallons of water once or twice a week is a general rule of thumb for watering during moderate summer weather. You can also water until some seepage occurs on top of the ground and the soil is softened around the tree. Since the City of Oconomowoc is under a watering ban, please water according to the rules of the ban; Customers with odd-numbered street addresses should use water for outdoor purposes only on the odd-numbered days of the month. Customers with even-numbered street addresses are restricted to outdoor water use on the even-numbered days. Water until the soil is soft around the tree. Deep soakings are better than frequent shallow watering.
