Reminder: landscape watering restrictions are still in effect

Posted by George J Janczyn on March 20, 2010

Now that things are drying up after the rains and more precipitation in the immediate future looks iffy, people are probably thinking about watering their landscaping (you haven’t watered at all since December, right?).

Don’t forget the rules for landscape irrigation that are still in effect:

Landscape irrigation is limited to no more than three assigned days per week. Those days are:

* Homes with odd-numbered addresses can water: Sunday, Tuesday & Thursday
* Homes with even-numbered addresses can water: Saturday, Monday & Wednesday
* Apartments, Condos and Businesses can water: Monday, Wednesday & Friday

Until May 31, you may only water before 10 a.m. or after 4 p.m. Landscape irrigation using sprinklers is limited to no more than seven minutes maximum per watering station per assigned day (does not apply to drip, micro-irrigation, stream rotor, rotary heads, hose end sprinklers with timers or valves operated by a weather-based irrigation controller).
