Welcome Summer. Extreme drought conditions and fire alerts are upon us. Effective immediately ALL FIREWORKS PROHIBITED WITHIN SCIPIO TOWN BOUNDERIES UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. Please observe the fire restrictions in place. Please do whatever you can to remove any fire hazards from your yards. Be mindful of your water use.
Irrigation and culinary water are critically low. Therefore; the following restrictions are effective immediately.
Irrigation water can only be used for a total of 3 hrs per week with no watering between the hrs of 10:00 am and 6:00 pm. Please remember that 2 1/2 shares allows for 6 rainbirds for a total of 3 hrs per week. Adjust accordingly if you have more or less than 2 1/2 shares.
If using culinary water for outside watering be very conservative. Keep trees and gardens alive but you may have to cut back usage on lawns and let them go dormant. Don't water between the hrs of 10:00 am and 6:00 pm. Water only when needed and not every day.
We appreciate everyone's cooperation and if we all follow these restrictions we may be able to get through the season without further reductions
