Does the city have watering restrictions?
Yes, a Water Conservation Ordinance is in effect year-round. Batavia follows the "odd/even" system; residents with odd-numbered house addresses may water on odd-numbered days, and similarly, even-numbered addresses may water on even-numbered days. Watering may be done between 6 a.m. - 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. - 9 p.m. on those days. For more information, see the Water Conservation page.

If you have a permanently-installed yard sprinkling system, it must be equipped with a backflow valve to prevent contamination of the city water system. Your system must be registered with the city, and the backflow valve must be inspected annually. Contact the Water Department at 630-454-2450 for more information.

You may apply for a sod / seed permit at any time for watering newly-installed seed or sod. Contact the Water Department at 630-454-2450 to apply.Water Conservation
