Executive Order: Temporary Odd/Even Lawn Watering Restriction
Effective July 3, 2020 
Due to extreme heat and dry conditions, the City of Rochester Hills has implemented a temporary odd/even lawn watering restriction, effective immediately through July 31. Water customers with an address ending in an odd number may water lawns on odd calendar dates, and those with an address ending in an even number may water on even calendar dates.

The City is asking businesses and residents to delay the start of their watering systems by 15, 30 or 45 minutes past the top of the hour to avoid sudden water pressure drops that have been detected on the hour. The City's watering ordinance restricts automatic watering systems to operate between midnight and 5:00 am.
