Mandatory Restrictions

The mandatory water use restrictions apply to everyone, regardless of whether the water comes from a private well, surface water, or a private or public utility.  The rule applies to homeowners and businesses, anyone who uses water outdoors.

  • Irrigation on these designated days is only permitted when necessary due to the lack of rainfall and only once per scheduled watering day.

  • In no case may irrigation exceed 1 hour per zone per scheduled watering day.

  • On scheduled days, irrigation times run from midnight to midnight. Midnight the day before to midnight the scheduled day, but not between 10:00 AM & 4:00 pm.

  • Hand watering is permitted anytime provided that the hose is equipped with an automatic shut-off device (when you let go, the flow stops).

  • Portable sprinklers, soaker hoses or low-volume sprinklers are not permitted unless equipped with a timing device that automatically shuts off the flow of water. These devices are also restricted to use during the above days and times.

  • Irrigation of new landscaping is permitted every day for the first 30 days (except between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.), if necessary due to lack of rainfall. Only those zones with substantial new (more than 50%) landscape material may be watered daily. Small areas of new foliage or sod must be hand-watered.

  • Systems must be maintained in the most conservative fashion avoiding overspray and runoff onto streets, driveways, walkways and other non-irrigated areas.

  • Fines are $50, $250, and $500 respectively and the possibility of disconnection of irrigation water service for ongoing violations.

  • Lawn pest or fertilizer applications by companies require a dated yard marker and watering when required, may only occur within 24 hours of such application. Applications by residents must comply with the above watering schedule.

  • Watering is allowed only 1 day per week.

  • This applies to ALL customers.

  • Irrigation of existing landscaping with odd numbered addresses is allowed on Saturday only.

TIPS

  • Rain sensors are required on ALL irrigation systems and should be set to ½” with the vents closed.  Properly calibrated and functioning sensors will not only save water…they save money!

  • Change the back-up battery in your controller annually.  A weak or bad battery can cause your system program to jump settings during a power failure or surge. 

  • Make it a habit to periodically check the setting in your controller to make sure they comply with the mandatory restrictions.  This could prevent you from receiving a violation and/or fine.

If you have any questions you can call our Water Conservation Coordinator at (352) 241-0178.
