At last night's Gillette City Council Work Session, the council had a discussion of an ordinance to amend section 17-32 of the Gillette City Code concerning water wasting. The possible ordinance would focus on irrigation, such as yard or property watering between June 1st and October 1st. City staff said its main focus would be to forbid watering on Mondays during that time period and on any day between the hours of 7am and 7pm. Fines issued to violators would add some teeth to what is currently a voluntary set of guidelines to discourage the wasting of water. Continuing to water with leaking or damaged irrigation components after 10 business days written notice to repair is also touched on in a draft of the ordinance.
