City of Lowell and Lowell Charter Township Implement  Odd-Even Outdoor Water Restriction Through Sept. 30
Lowell and Lowell Charter Township, Michigan, June 20, 2024 – The City of Lowell and Lowell Charter Township today announced an odd-even outdoor water restriction for municipal customers that goes into effect immediately through Sept. 30.
 
The restriction does not affect water used for drinking and bathing purposes. It limits when residents and businesses can water their lawns and landscaping to minimize the burden on the city’s water treatment plant during the warmer months.
 
Under the restriction, outdoor watering is allowed on odd days for properties in the city and township with an address that ends in an odd number. For example, an address of 611 can water on the first, third, fifth, seventh, etc. day of the month. For properties with an even address – for example, 610 – outdoor watering is allowed on the second, fourth, sixth, eighth, etc. day of the month.
 
Lowell City Manager Mike Burns and Lowell Charter Township Supervisor Jerry Hale ask for the community’s support of the outdoor water use restriction. Burns noted the City of Lowell is currently evaluating options to expand its water treatment plant to increase capacity. In this interim, he said, compliance with the restriction will help the municipalities avoid an outright ban on landscape irrigation
