Residential address will dictate whether you water on an odd or even day, effective immediately.


Take a look at your street address.

It now determines what day of the week you will be able to water your lawn.

Due to the high water demand during the recent drought and high temperatures, the city of Lake Forest has gone to an Odd/Even Address Regulations effective immediately.

Residents with even-numbered addresses may water only on even-numbered days, and residents with odd-numbered addresses may water only on odd-numbered days.

This is a step up from the June 22 restriction when residents were told not to water between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. daily.

Signs have been installed around the city alerting residents to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources’ Odd/Even Water Regulations. 

For information, call John Gulledge, supervisor of Water and Sewer Utilities in the Public Works Department, at (847) 810-4650.
