Flushing Reminders: Careful what you put down the pipes!

The Town of Johnstown would like to remind residents to be mindful when flushing items down the toilet. Only flush the “3 P’s": pee, poo, & (toilet) paper. Flushing other items or materials down the toilet—even if they're labeled as flushable—can seriously clog your pipes. It can also create a backup at the Town's wastewater treatment facility that Utilities Department staff then have to sort out.

Johnstown Watering Schedule In Effect Starting 7/19/2022

On July 18, Town Council passed a resolution implementing Level 2 outdoor water restrictions, requiring that homes limit outdoor watering to every other day based on house number. Additionally, homes will be tasked with watering either in the morning from 12am-10am or in the evening from 6pm-11:59pm. The goal of this watering schedule is not to prevent irrigation, but to be more purposeful with the demand on water so that the water tanks have time to refill for continued use for the entire community.
