Due to the unusually dry conditions that are persisting into the summer months, the Forest Lakes Metropolitan District Board elected to be proactive in addressing this issue and, at the May 7th Board meeting, approved implementation of Stage I Drought Restrictions for outdoor irrigation. While Stage I restrictions are voluntary, we strongly encourage all residents to adhere to these restrictions, which provide that outdoor irrigation should be limited to 3 days per week. We suggest that residential users with even numbered addresses only irrigate on Sunday, Wednesday and Friday and that residential users with odd numbered addresses limit outdoor irrigation to Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. The park and open spaces will only be irrigated on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. As the summer progresses, we will continue to monitor water usage levels for our residents and the amount of irrigation required for the District landscaping and Waterfront Park. If the level of usage presents too much stress for our well, the Board may elect to go to mandatory water restrictions at some point. We encourage all residents to review the settings on their irrigation systems to ensure that they are not over-watering established turf areas.
