Water Restrictions

Lawn Watering

Annually, from April 1 through October 31, watering your yard / landscaping is not allowed between the hours of 10:00 am and 6:00 pm. However, you may water your yard at any time with a hand-held hose. You may use a sprinkler or your irrigation system between the hours of 6:00 pm and 10:00 am. New landscaping and/or sod may be watered at any time.

Note: Any new irrigation system must be equipped with rain-sensing devices and freeze sensing devices that would prevent the system from coming on in adverse weather.
