The Town Board may adopt rules and regulations and from time to time impose, modify, suspend and reimpose the same for the use of water within water districts, as follows:
A. 
Whenever the Town Board determines that a shortage of water exists, it may forbid the sprinkling of lawns and gardens, either between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. or between such occasions as the Board shall publicly direct.
B. 
The use of a suction or booster pump to draw water, directly or indirectly, from any street main is hereby prohibited; provided, however, that the Town Board may issue a permit permitting the use of such a pump if, in its opinion, the use thereof will not unduly interfere with the supply of water to other residents.
Whenever the Town Board shall determine to impose restrictions upon the use of water for sprinkling, it shall cause notice thereof to be published in the official newspaper of the Town and such publication shall be presumptive notice to every resident of each water district to which such restriction applies from and after the date of such publication.
Violation of these rules and regulations shall constitute a misdemeanor, punishable by a fine not exceeding $50 or imprisonment for not exceeding 30 days, or both. In addition thereto, the Town Board may enforce compliance with these rules and regulations by cutting off the supply of water.
