Effective immediately customers of Lafayette Utilities System (LUS) including Youngsville, Broussard, Milton, Scott, Water District North and Water District South must follow water conservation rules.

By following an odd/even watering schedule water pressure will be adequate to fight fires. Between Midnight and 2PM customers with odd-numbered addresses can water lawns on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Customers with even numbered addresses may water from Midnight until 2PM on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays. No watering is allowed on Mondays.

In addition to following the odd/even watering schedule LUS recommends examining sprinkler systems, hoses and all connections. LUS also says you should insure your sprinklers are watering lawns and plants not pavement.
