[ARCHIVED] Daytime Watering Restrictions begin April 1


Time to check your irrigation schedule! Sprinkler use is prohibited between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. from April 1 to October 31 each year.

Residents may use sprinklers up to two times per week on assigned watering days. Use the Outdoor Watering Schedule Map to identify your neighborhood's watering schedule.

Excessive sprinkler use can lead to disease and other problems in the lawn and landscape, as well as significantly increase your utility bill. During the growing season, your lawn and landscape may not need as much water as you think. Even though sprinkler use is permitted up to two times per week, it may not be necessary. In order to conserve, two times per week may only be needed when it's extremely hot or dry. Normally one time per week or less is sufficient to maintain healthy lawns.

As always, using sprinklers when it's raining or when the temperature is below freezing is prohibited.
