When can I water my yard?
Sprinklers/irrigation systems may be used up to twice per week on assigned watering days, as needed. This includes sprinklers attached to a hose. You can water with a hand-held hose, soaker hose or dedicated drip zone anytime, provided no runoff occurs.
Daytime watering restrictions
From April 1 to October 31, sprinkler use is not allowed between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. This helps reduce water lost to evaporation.
Rain, freeze violations
It is a violation of the Water Conservation Plan to operate sprinklers when it is raining or below 32°F.
Is it possible to water too much?
Excessive sprinkler use can lead to disease and other problems in the lawn and landscape. It can also significantly increase your utility bill. Complete our Sprinkler Math Worksheet to estimate your use.
During the growing season, your lawn and landscape may not need as much water as you think. Unless it is unusually hot or dry, you can maintain a healthy lawn by watering once per week or less.
Are there other restrictions on water use?
All restrictions from the Water Conservation portion of Water Conservation & Resource Management Plan are in effect. See the full list.
