Due to the recent spikes in temperatures, water demand in the Battle Ground area is way up and conservation efforts are needed to sustain water reserve levels, according to a news release.

In the release, the city mentioned a simple and effective way to conserve water with an odd/even watering schedule. If your home address ends in an odd number, irrigate on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday only. If your address ends in an even number, water on Saturday, Monday and Wednesday. Friday is a non-watering day for everyone.

The odd/even watering system helps distribute water demand, reducing spikes in the system. For more information and tips on water conservation, visit cityofbg.org/239/Water-Conservation.
