Water Conservation Program

Orland Park’s Water Conservation Program is in effect year round. Between September 16 to May 14 the village allows outdoor water usage from 7 a.m. - 11 a.m. or 7 p.m. - 11 p.m. 

Lawn Sprinkling
During the summer months it is difficult to maintain adequate water levels within the water reservoirs mainly due to lawn sprinkling.   To help facilitate an adequate level the village has implemented a summer restricted outdoor water usage policy.

Odd / Even Rule
Every year between May 15 and September 15, the village restricts outdoor water usage in order to maintain adequate water levels in towers and reservoirs.
  • Homes and businesses with addresses ending in 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8, may sprinkle between 7 a.m. - 11 a.m. or 7 p.m. - 11 p.m. only on even-numbered days.
  • Homes and businesses with addresses ending in 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 may sprinkle between 7 a.m. - 11 a.m. or 7 p.m. - 11 p.m. only on odd-numbered days.

Special Permit for Daily Watering
A special permit from the Public Works Department may allow newly sodded lawns to be watered on a daily basis. Watering on a daily basis is only allowed upon issuance of the special permit. The New Landscaping Sprinkler Application may be downloaded for your use in applying for the special permit

Those violating the village’s water usage provisions are subject to fines of $750 for each offense. Each day of violation and each violating location shall be considered a separate offense. Questions may be directed to the Public Works Department at 708-403-6350.
