City Council Approves New Water Rationing Schedule

Under the new ordinance, odd-numbered addresses will irrigate on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and even-numbered addresses on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, before 9 a.m. and after 4 p.m. to minimize evaporation.

Street addresses ending in 1/2 or any fraction would follow the schedule for the last whole number in the address.

Residents will be able to turn on “non-conserving nozzles,” such as spray head sprinklers and bubblers, for up to eight minutes a day, or 24 minutes a week.

“Conserving nozzles,” such as standard rotors and multi-stream rotary heads, may be turned on twice a day for up to 15 minutes each time, for a total of 90 minutes a week.

Watering with garden hoses that have shut-off nozzles is permissible any day of the week, but only before 9 a.m. and after 4 p.m.
