Landscape watering restrictions change on June 1

Posted by George J Janczyn on May 19, 2010

Some people may not be aware that between Nov 1 and June 1, San Diego’s landscape watering rules not only limit watering to three days per week before 10am or after 4pm, but each watering session is limited to 7 minutes.

On June 1, the allowable times change to before 10am or after 6pm, and each watering session may last 10 minutes.

* 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

(these rules do not apply to drip, micro-irrigation, stream rotor, rotary heads, hose end sprinklers with timers or valves operated by a weather-based irrigation controller).

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).
