SPOTSWOOD, NJ - The beginning of May means that summer fun isn't far away. However, it also signals the beginning of mandatory water restrictions in the borough for Spotswood residents. Odd/even water restrictions took effect on May 1 and will continue through September 15.

The odd/even restriction applies to water usage such as lawn and plant watering, washing of vehicles and outdoor toys, filling swimming pools and cleaning home exteriors. Residents living in odd-numbered addresses are asked to do those chores on odd calendar days while folks residing in even-numbered homes should complete those water-related tasks on even calendar days. Water should not be used for the afore mentioned tasks on the 31st day of May, July and August.

The need for late spring and summer water restrictions stems from the borough's reliance on a neighboring town for additional water supplies during the high-demand months of May, June, July, August and September. According to the Spotswood Borough website, the odd/even restrictions from May 1 through September 15 help the borough keep water costs down.

The only exception to the odd/even schedule is for any resident with a newly seeded or sodded lawn as well as folks planting new shrubbery. However, in those instances, water may not be applied for more than 45 minutes per newly planted section.
