DETROIT, July 9, 2001 — In an effort to avoid water distribution problems in the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department service area due to extreme heat and high water usage, the Department has instituted an odd/even water use restriction beginning today for Oakland and Macomb counties.

Residents and business owners in those areas are asked to abide by the following guidelines: Individuals with odd-numbered addresses are asked to do outdoor watering only on odd-numbered days. Likewise, those having even- numbered addresses should water lawns, fill swimming pools, wash cars and perform other outdoor watering tasks on even-numbered days.

Cooperation in maintaining odd/even water use requirements will enable water customers to continue receiving an even distribution of water and avoid low pressure probleDWSD will provide regular updates concerning the restriction, which will remain in effect until further notice.
