[Adopted 12-2-1987 by L.L. No. 8-1987]
It is the determination of the Board of Trustees, based upon a study conducted on behalf of the Board of Supervisors of the County of Nassau, that circumstances exist with respect to the sufficiency of water supply within Nassau County which pose a potential threat to the safety and well-being of its citizens. Accordingly, the Board of Trustees does adopt applicable provisions of the Nassau County Comprehensive Management/Conservation Program which is designed to regulate or limit the use of water throughout the county, including the towns, cities, villages and special districts, and provide for enforcement of such program since it is the policy of the Village to conserve, protect and manage the waters within its jurisdiction. This determination has been made in connection with the action of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation in imposing restrictions in 1986 and in view of the fact that the water supply in Nassau County is dependent upon a sole-source aquifer system which serves domestic, industrial, commercial and/or recreational needs of individuals in the county, and the Board further finds that, due to the sensitivity of the aquifer system, certain limitations are necessary to curb water withdrawals in order to ensure a long-term water supply.
During the hours of 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., no person shall water, hose, sprinkle or otherwise irrigate any outdoor lawn, field, garden hedge or shrub, except in accordance with the following:
Persons occupying residences or other establishments with even-numbered addresses may water, hose sprinkle or otherwise irrigate other than during the above hours on even-numbered days of the month.
Persons occupying residences or other establishments with odd-numbered addresses may water, hose sprinkle or otherwise irrigate other than during the above hours on odd-numbered days of the month.
Persons occupying residences or other establishments without numbered addresses may water, hose sprinkle or otherwise irrigate other than during the above hours on even-numbered days of the month.
Nothing in this section shall be construed to limit, restrict or prohibit irrigation of any sort which is done by means of water obtained from sources other than the Nassau County sole-source aquifer system.
All commercial car washes and all fleet vehicle washes for which building permits have not been issued shall be equipped with water-recycling systems.
The Village of Malverne shall be responsible for enforcement of this section.
Enforcement of this chapter shall be effected by the Malverne Police Department or any other law enforcement officer or agency having jurisdiction within the Village limits.
Any person or persons, association or corporation committing an offense against the provisions of § 586-5 of this article shall be guilty of a violation punishable by a fine of $50 for the first offense, $100 for the second offense, $200 for the third offense and $500 for each and every offense thereafter.
