Lacey’s Alternate Day Watering Begins June 1

Lacey water customers will follow an alternate day watering schedule for their yards and outdoor landscapes beginning Sunday, June 1, 2014. Alternate day watering is mandatory for all Lacey water customers during the months of June, July, August, and September.  

The Lacey City Council approved the watering policy in 2006 as an effort to reduce peak water demand during the summer. Lacey’s water usage has exceeded 16 million gallons per day during summer months compared with only five million gallons per day in the winter.
