Current Watering Restictions

Watering restrictions dates are May 1 - September 30

  • No watering between 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. 
  • Watering is limited 3 days per week 
  • Do not allow water to pool in the gutter, the street, or on property

The city is asking residents to voluntarily water their lawn two days a week during peak months (July & August). With a controller's limited options, it's best way is to assign days based on address, as most controllers cannot be set to every third day.
