City of Altoona Implements Partial Watering Ban

Thursday, June 10, 2021
David Walter | Director of Public Works/City Engineer

ALTOONA, WI -- Due to continued population growth and use of irrigation systems during this period of high temperatures, the City of Altoona is ordering a partial ban on watering lawns and other vegetation and on all vehicle washing at home. The ban applies to all City of Altoona water customers including residents, businesses, schools, and parks.

Watering lawns will only be allowed on alternating sides of the street depending on the date. If a resident has an even-numbered address, they may water on even-numbered days and residents with odd-numbered addresses may water on odd-numbered days.

The measures are being implemented immediately to conserve water in order to maintain an adequate supply for drinking and fire protection.

The ban will remain in effect until a press release cancelling the ban is issued by the City.

The ban is being implemented consistent with Altoona Municipal Ordinance 13.28.010. Failure to comply with the ban could result in a fine up to $500 for the first offense. If you have any questions regarding the ban, please contact the City of Altoona at (715) 839-6092 or cityhall@ci.altoona.wi.us.  For updates, please visit the City's website at www.ci.altoona.wi.us.
