Water Conservation - watering schedule 


Two day per week watering started March 1 and runs through October 31, 2018.

Your watering days are based on your address. Addresses that end with even numbers water on Wednesday and Sunday. Addresses that end with odd numbers water on Tuesday and Saturday. It’s always wise to water before 10 a.m. or after 7 p.m.

For more watering options, see the How to Water Your Landscape document below.
