According to the U.S. Drought Portal ( , the Princeton/Haughton area is experiencing severe to extreme drought.  Several surrounding cities and rural areas have already issued water conservation requirements; some have gone as far as shutting off water to their customers.

The Village Water System, that provides water to the Princeton/Haughton area, has asked that water conservation measures be employed inside and outside home.  They are advising customers to NOT water lawns/gardens nor fill/refill pools.  If your lawns/gardens are in danger they ask that you minimize sprinkling time by 50%, and follow this schedule:

Odd addresses/homes should water lawns/gardens Mondays and Wednesdays.

Even addresses/homes (including those ending in zero) should water on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

They urge customers NOT TO WATER ON WEEKENDS!
