Reminder for LUS customers: Check the chart below before you turn on your sprinkler. Enforcement of the water conservation ordinance, aimed at combating low water pressure during peak hours (late afternoon and evening) is May 1 through September 30 of each year. This affects all customers using water from Lafayette Utilities System (LUS), including wholesale users (Youngsville, Broussard, Milton, Scott, Water District North and Water District South). The ordinance applies only to automated watering systems and sprinklers, not hand-held hose watering.

 

With the hottest months of the year approaching, the water conservation ordinance is designed to help the system maintain pressure levels needed to fight fires and ensure the safety of our community. Low water pressure is caused by competition for water during peak times, such as when customers simultaneously try to use large amounts of water for automated lawn watering along with typical consumption. By simply rescheduling lawn watering, customers help to protect our water supply as well as prevent a threat to firefighting efforts in our community.

Watering violations should be reported to LUS by calling (337) 291-5740. For more information about the water conservation ordinance, visit www.lus.org/WaterConservation.

What is the schedule for automated watering systems and sprinklers?
  • Customers with odd-numbered addresses (ending with 1, 3, 5, 7, 9) water only on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
  • Customers with even-numbered addresses (ending with 0, 2, 4, 6, 8) water only on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.
  • No automated watering is permitted on Mondays, except as provided in the exceptions list below.
