Time of day outdoor watering restrictions are in effect!
Water early for the best results.
Watering in the early morning (between 4 a.m. and 8 a.m.) saves money and water, while keeping your grass, plants, and trees healthier.
Watering early when the sun is low and winds are calm.
- Helps reduce water loss from evaporation due to heat and wind.
- Improves soil absorption so water and nutrients get to plant roots, where it’s needed most.
Always follow local watering guidelines and restrictions. Visit www.smartirrigationmonth.org for more smart ideas to save water and dollars.
From April 15 through November 1, City water customers must water outdoors between 8:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m. daily. In 2006, the City of Prescott adopted a Time of Day Outdoor Watering restriction into City Code to improve the community’s efforts for conservation-minded irrigation and to meet state water conservation requirements.
