JOLIET — Due to the extreme heat and current drought conditions, the city’s aquifer levels have dropped.
Lawn watering may only occur between 6 and 10 a.m. or 6 and 10 p.m. at even-numbered addresses on even-numbered days and at odd-numbered addresses on odd-numbered days.
The only exception applies to homeowners and/or businesses who intend to install sod.
To receive a proper permit for this exception, customers should contact the Department of Public Utilities at 815-724-4220 prior to sod installation.
The city will continue to monitor the aquifer levels in order to avoid a complete watering ban with the help of residents’ compliance with the current watering restrictions.
