Odds and Evens System Explained

This means that if the street number of your property is an even number you can water in accordance with the restrictions on even numbered days. eg 12 Smith St can water on the 2nd, 4th, 6th...30th of each month. If your property has an odd number, you can water in accordance with the restrictions on odd numbered days. eg 11 Smith St can water on the 1st, 3rd, 5th...31th of each month. If your property has no street number then it should be treated as an even numbered property.
