Watering Restrictions

Mandatory lawn watering restrictions specify the days when you may water. These days depend on whether you have an odd- or even-numbered address, and the time of year. In the spring and summer, the temperatures are hotter and the days are longer. This means our lawns may require a little more water to remain healthy. So unless your day and number are up, make sure those sprinklers stay down.

Irrigation schedule for Daylight Saving Time (the second Sunday of March through the first Sunday of November) and Eastern Standard Time (the first Sunday of November through the second Sunday of March):

Water only if necessary and not between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

Water for no more than one hour per zone.

Restrictions apply to private wells and pumps, ground or surface water, and water from public and private utilities.


  • Never water your lawn or landscaping between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. During this time, most of the water is lost to evaporation.
  • Use low-flow showerheads.
  • Don’t use running water to defrost food.
  • Turn off the water while brushing your teeth.
