Annually, the Village of Westmont has water sprinkling restrictions beginning May 15 and continuing through September 15. The restrictions only apply to mechanical sprinkling of lawns and gardens. Sprinkling by hand is allowed.

EVEN-NUMBERED street address should NOT sprinklebetween the hours of 7 and 11 a.m., or between the hours of 7 and 11 p.m. on dates of the month having an even number.
The watering of trees, shrubs, flowers and gardens shall be permitted at all times provided such watering is done by means of handheld devices. Watering by “soil soaking” method also shall be permitted.
During any period in which an extreme water supply shortage exists in the Village, as determined by the Mayor, no water from Village water mains shall be used for any purpose outside a residence, business or other building, other than for the extinguishing of fires or other emergencies.
