City’s landscape watering rules change Nov. 1. Here’s what you need to know

Department of Utilities staff are reminding people about the City’s year-round watering schedule, which requires residents and businesses to limit when they water landscapes.

During spring and summer months, the schedule allows people to water their lawn and landscapes up to two times per week.

Starting Nov. 1, the schedule only allows people to water their landscapes once per week on either Saturday or Sunday.

“Some people don’t realize the schedule is year-round and accounts for the seasons,” said William Granger, the City’s water conservation coordinator. “Plants need much less water in the winter — sometimes getting all they need from rain.”

No watering is allowed for a 48-hour period after it rains more than one-eighth of an inch.

“It’s important to remind people that the watering schedule exists, regardless of drought conditions,” Granger said.

People can find more information on the City’s watering schedule webpage.
