Until further notice, the City of Brighton has issued temporary restrictions on the use of lawn irrigation systems within its water system.
“The City is currently performing maintenance on its Summit water tower and is close to its completion,” states a press release. “Due to the increased water usage that has developed in the last week it is necessary to temporarily restrict the use of irrigation to continue providing daily and emergency water service to its customers.”
City officials say water customers can irrigate using the following parameters:
If your address is an odd number, you can irrigate on odd numbered dates.
If your address ends in an even number, you can irrigate on even numbered dates.
Please consider only using your irrigation system when necessary until the restrictions are lifted. If the restrictions do not alleviate the water pressure issues, we will have to issue a moratorium on all irrigation until the tower is back in service.
Full service of the tower is expected to be reached on June 9, 2023.
“We are sorry for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we continue to upgrade our water utilities,” stated the release.
Anyone with any questions is asked to contact the City of Brighton Department of Public Works at (810) 225-8001.
