Effective August 8th, the watering restrictions that were implemented on June 29th have been lifted. The implementation of the restrictions was a pro-active approach to avoid any quantity / mechanical issues that could arise due to increased pumping directly related to the extreme heat / drought and subsequent irrigation, and in doing so, prevented the initiation of a “complete watering ban”.
The Oconomowoc Water Utility would like to thank the citizens and businesses for their dedicated co-operation during this period. With your co-operation and some rain events, we were able to sustain our water supply without any problems / interruptions. We encourage the continued conservation and wise use of this valuable resource, helping to ensure plentiful quantities for future generations.
