[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Cedarhurst: Art. I, 9-19-1987 by L.L. No. 10-1987. Amendments noted where applicable.]
[Adopted 9-19-1987 by L.L. No. 10-1987]
It is the determination of this Board of Trustees that circumstances exist with respect to the sufficiency of water supply within Nassau County which poses a potential threat to the safety and well-being of its citizens. Accordingly, the Board of Trustees declares a conservation program which is designed to regulate or limit the use of water throughout the village and to provide for enforcement of such program since it is the policy of the village to conserve, protect and manage the waters within its jurisdiction.
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; and
Provided, further, that 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 aquifer system.
The Nassau County Police Department or the Village of Cedarhurst inspectors or village officials shall be charged with the enforcement of this chapter.

Liability for damages for injuries to persons or to property caused by sprinkler heads installed on public property and connected to the lawn sprinkler system installed on private property shall be the sole responsibility of the owner of such private property.
If an employee of the Village damages such sprinkler heads installed on public property, the Village shall under no circumstances be responsible for or charged with the cost of repair therefor, however, if the owner of such private property gives written notice thereof served upon the Village Administrator by certified mail, return receipt requested, or by personal delivery within 90 days after the occurrence thereof, the Village shall repair said damage to the sprinkler head.
