Logo City of Lamar 2021




The City of Lamar is reminding Lamar water users that Modified Stage 1 water restrictions to conserve water began on May 1. Limiting water use ensures that the City and its residents steward its available water for today and the future. Stage 1 Watering Restrictions are in effect May 1 – September 30, 2024. As per City of Lamar Resolutions 19-04-02 and 21-10-04, they are:

  • Restricted days: Watering of landscape (i.e., flowers, flower beds, lawns, trees, shrubs, vegetable gardens and plants) shall be permitted on every day of the week.
  • Restricted Hours: Landscape watering shall be permitted only before 11:00 a.m. and after 6:00 p.m. 
  • Restricted Water Uses: Property owners shall be required to monitor their irrigation systems to limit over-spray of landscape water into impervious concrete surfaces such as sidewalks, driveways, streets or alleyways. Washing of impervious surfaces such as parking lots and driveways is not permitted.
  • Limited Water Uses: Washing of private vehicles is permitted only by use of a hose with a positive shutoff nozzle or by use of a bucket.

Enacting water restrictions moderates summer demand and can prevent Lamar from passing more stringent water restrictions.
