Turn Off Those Sprinklers: Water Ban in Effect

It started on May 1, and continues through Sept. 30. 

In Hamilton, it is unlawful to engage in nonessential outside water use through a sprinkler or lawn irrigation system between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.

"All water hoses shall be controlled by a nozzle, sprinkler or other device to regulate the flow of water leaving the hose. No use of an open-ended hose is permitted with the exception of filling or topping of swimming pools. All outside spigots shall be retrofitted with an antisiphon device. All existing automatic underground irrigation systems shall have rain sensors wired into them to prevent unnecessary watering."
