Lawn watering accounts for over half the drinking water we use on summertime activities. The region-wide
watering regulations are an effective way to help us use our drinking water wisely.
Lawn watering regulations are in effect May 1 to October 15
Residential lawn watering allowed:
(includes townhomes and apartment buildings)
Even-numbered addresses Wednesday, Saturday: 4 am to 9 am
Odd-numbered addresses Thursday, Sunday: 4 am to 9 am
Non-residential lawn watering allowed:
Even-numbered addresses Monday: 1 am to 6 am
Odd-numbered addresses Tuesday: 1 am to 6 am
All non-residential addresses Friday: 4 am to 9 am
Watering trees, shrubs and flowers is permitted any day, from 4 am to 9 am if using a sprinkler, or any time if hand watering or using drip irrigation. All hoses must have an automatic shut-off device.
An hour of steady rain or sprinkling per week is all you need for a healthy lawn, with deep roots that can stand up to a dry summer. Find more information
here about maintaining a lawn while using less water and complying with the regulations.
