Sprinklers banned in portions of Ottawa County starting Aug. 11

OTTAWA COUNTY — County officials say residents in parts of Ottawa County are banned from using sprinklers starting Aug. 11.

The order comes as their supplier, Wyoming Water Supply, deals with an emergency repair to one of two water transmission mains.

“Water remains safe and drinkable so long as the water pressure is maintained,” says Director of Public Works Myron Erickson, “the emergency repair itself doesn’t impact water quality. However, low system pressure may impact water quality due to cross connections. That is why it is incredibly important to follow this temporary Sprinkling Ban.”

Those impacted include the Ottawa County communities of Park Township, Holland Township, Zeeland Township, Olive Township, Blendon Township, Jamestown Township, Georgetown Township, and the City of Hudsonville.

Officals say one transmission main can handle indoor use at this time.

They expect the ban is expected to last no longer than 2 weeks.
