2021 Summer Watering Schedule

*Johnstown requests that residents follow new watering schedule*

The water schedule pictured is specific to automatic sprinkler systems and irrigation systems. If you hand water, use a watering can, or manually move a sprinkler device, the Town requests that you refrain from watering between 9am-6pm and be conscious of water use and over watering. 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.

Town Council, during Monday’s Town Council Meeting, opted not to pass a compulsory ordinance regarding the water schedule at this time. However, Council encourages support and responsible consideration of this water schedule and will consider compulsory measures in the future if needed.

Updates on the impact of residents following the watering schedule will be released below, on Fridays.

Water Tank Output Data for 2021

July 14, 2021 Update: Showing water tank output data from 7/14/21
The graphic below shows the water tank output during the hours of 3am - 8am and 6pm-9pm. Each hour shows the average highest output of water during that period. Each water droplet represents 1 million gallons of water leaving the water treatment plant. If the water plant averaged 4 million gallons of water at its highest output in these hours, it would mean better service and pressure for Johnstown residents.
