Troy Trying To Cut Back On Water Use This Summer
The City of Troy wants you to be careful when it comes time to water your lawn this summer. That comes after several dry days in a row, which city officials worry could put a strain on water supply.
Troy Utilities officials say they want everyone to water their lawns on an "odd-even" schedule. That means people with odd numbered street addresses should water their lawns on odd numbered days of the month. Those with even numbered addresses should water their lawns on the even days.
The "odd-even" schedule isn't mandatory yet, but utilities officials say that could happen if the area has too many rain-free days in a row.
