As a user of Lake Michigan water, the Village is required to impose restrictions by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR); therefore, during the summer months, water restrictions are in effect. New regulations were adopted in 2016 and are summarized below.

Lawn sprinkling is no longer allowed on consecutive days. Sprinkling is also prohibited between the hours of 12:00 PM and 6:00 PM The restricted sprinkling hours began on May 15, and are effective until September 15.

Sprinkling during otherwise prohibited hours may be permitted for a limited time with special approval by the Director of the Water & Electric Department. Sprinkling may be allowed for newly seeded or sod areas and for the annual activation or repair of sprinkler systems.

To obtain the special approval, or if you have questions, call 847-716-3558, or email: gmclean@winnetka.org.
