But does that change how often you can water your lawn this summer?
Despite 2019’s abundant precipitation, it still is important to support long-term conservation measures, city officials say. All that rain hasn’t washed away memories of California’s recent historic drought.
The City’s two-days-per-week watering schedule remains in effect for all Sacramento utilities customers this summer.
Even-numbered addresses may water on Wednesdays and Sundays; odd-numbered addresses may water on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
The two-day-per-week watering schedule runs March 1 through Oct. 1. From Nov. 1 to Feb. 28, watering is reduced to one day per week.
Regardless of the season, watering is allowed from 7 p.m. to 10 a.m. only, which helps to prevent evaporation, especially on hot summer days.
Remember, no over-watering (excessive water running off properties and onto sidewalks or gutters) is allowed, nor is watering within 48 hours of measurable rain (one-eighth of an inch).
Water conservation is a shared community commitment. If you see water being misused, please report it by calling 311 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
