Restart Split Lawn and Landscaping Watering Schedules on June 1
As summer unfolds, our community often experiences hot and dry conditions, which leads to a high demand for lawn and landscaping watering. With the well-being of our community in mind, Wentzville residents and businesses are encouraged to adopt a split schedule for lawn and landscaping irrigation from June 1 to Sept. 30. These measures are intended to support our collective efforts in maintaining a sustainable water supply. During split lawn and landscaping watering, a three-days-per-week schedule for regular lawn and landscaping irrigation is suggested:

  • Customers with even-numbered addresses will schedule regular lawn and landscaping watering on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings.
  • Customers with odd-numbered addresses will schedule regular lawn and landscaping watering on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings.
  • Supplemental watering is available for customers on Sunday mornings at half of a regular scheduled watering day to ensure pressures remain balanced across the community.
Pools Are Open!

Pools at Splash Station Aquatic Center and Progress Park Pool will be open daily through Aug. 16, except in cases of inclement weather or unforeseen circumstances. Progress Park Pool is open daily from noon-5 p.m., while Splash Station is open weekdays from noon-6 p.m. and weekends from noon-6:30 p.m. Please note: outdoor aquatic facilities are closed when Wentzville School District is in session. Offering safe, quality programs is a high priority for Wentzville Parks and Recreation. Due to staffing needs, adjusting operating hours throughout the season may be necessary. If you know anyone who is interested in joining our aquatics team, please encourage them to apply online here. Let's have some fun this summer, Wentzville!

Fireworks Reminders
City ordinance allows fireworks to be discharged ONLY on July 3 and July 4 of each year, and only between the hours of noon and 11 p.m. each day. These restrictions will be strictly enforced. Outside this allowed time frame, a summons may be issued, and fireworks may be confiscated. Please take precautions when shooting off fireworks and be mindful and courteous of your neighbors.

Remember:

  • A responsible adult should supervise all fireworks activities. Never give fireworks to children.
  • Light one firework at a time and then move away.
  • Always have a bucket of water and a hose nearby.
  • Alcohol and fireworks do not mix. Save your alcohol for after the show.
  • Dispose of spent fireworks by wetting them down and placing them in a metal trash can away from any buildings. Do not place fireworks in your plastic trash carts, as they can easily melt.

Please note that fireworks are not allowed to be set off on City property, including streets, sidewalks and cul-de-sacs, or at any park within the City. To report illegal fireworks use, please call the nonemergency line at (636) 327-5105. To learn more, click here.
