Lawn-watering restrictions suggested for Weehawken
Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise and United Water New Jersey officials are asking the company’s customers in six North Hudson County towns to conserve water due to low water storage levels. The most effective way to do this is to water lawns only between the hours of 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., the county said.
The request applies to the following North Hudson communities: Guttenberg, North Bergen, Secaucus, Union City, Weehawken, and West New York.
The company also advised customers not to open fire hydrants. Residents are asked to report open fire hydrants to the local police department. They can also call United Water’s 24 hour emergency department at (201) 487-0011.
