Lawn Sprinkling Restrictions

Lawn Sprinkling

With the arrival of lawn sprinkling season we would like to remind the community of the following regulations regarding sprinkling.

  • Odd-even sprinkling days. If your address is an even number you can sprinkle on even numbered days. If your address is an odd number, you can sprinkle on odd numbered days.
  • From May 15 until September 15 no sprinkling is allowed between 10 am and 6 pm. This is the hottest part of the day and most water is lost to evaporation.

Exceptions

  • Private wells used for watering.
  • City owned athletic fields.
  • Hand watering of gardens and trees using a watering can or hose.
  • Watering of new landscaping or sod for a period of 30 days after installation.

This policy is in place to help limit the impact of heavy water usage periods in the City’s water supply. It is not necessary to water every day to promote a healthy lawn.
