Voluntary Water Use Restrictions

The City of Farmington Hills is asking all property owners with automated sprinkler systems to follow Voluntary Water Use Restrictions in an effort to control future water rate increases. Compliance with the Voluntary Water Use Restrictions will result in less water usage during peak times and help hold down costs by increasing the efficiency of the water system.

Under the voluntary demand management system, water users are asked to:

  • Water residential and commercial lawns/landscaping and subdivision common areas between the hours of midnight and 6 a.m. Experts recommend that lawns be watered closer to the morning hours so the lawn will have water during the heat of the day. Restrictions are for automatic sprinkler systems, not hoses or sprinklers connected to hoses.
  • Water lawns and landscaping for properties with even-numbered addresses on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.
  • Water lawns and landscaping for properties with odd-numbered addresses on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.

The City of Farmington Hills is complying with these regulations and watering public areas in accordance with these restrictions. The Farmington Hills Golf Course and Founders Sports Park irrigate using water from drainage ponds that are not part of the City’s water system.

Farmington Hills is a customer of the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD). DWSD determines rates to suburban communities based on various significant factors that include maximum day demand and peak hour demand. By shifting usage to non-peak hours and reducing spikes in the daily demand, water cost increases can be reduced.

City officials thank you in advance for your compliance with the Voluntary Water Use Restrictions. Following these guidelines will help to regulate water usage and control water rates. If you have any questions regarding water restrictions, please call the Department of Public Services at (248)871-2530.
