2017 Irrigation Season - Sod Permits will not be required. Please check back in Spring 2018 as the City will monitor water conditions and may change this if necessary.
Why sod permits? The placement of new sod or seed demands significantly more water than on an established lawn. Because of this, the City would prefer that no sod or new seed be laid during the months of June, July and August.
If you choose to install new sod or seed, please be aware that excessive watering that results in runoff from the sodded or seeded area or excess over spray onto hardscapes does constitute water waste and can result in warnings and fines. Please remember under voluntary water restrictions, irrigation is prohibited between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. every day.
Any exposed soil needs to be temporarily stabilized until sod can be installed. The use of erosion control blankets, straw wattles and/or silt fence is required to prevent stormwater pollution. Please visit the Stormwater Management website for more information.
