Irrigation Guidelines

Did you Know?

Time of Day Watering Restrictions

City Ordinance No. 4536, which has been in effect since 2006, has Time-of-Day Outdoor Watering Restrictions.   From April 15th to November 1st, if you use an outdoor spray irrigation or airborne watering system, you are allowed to water AFTER 8 PM and BEFORE 8 AM.

Low volume drip irrigation systems are exempt from this requirement.

Other times of the year watering is allowed, but it is still recommended that you water early in the morning.
