Time-of-day watering restrictions are in effect

Through Aug. 31, mandatory watering restrictions prohibit landscape irrigation between the hours of 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. Watering on Sundays is always prohibited.

A water shortage on the Colorado River means it's more important than ever to conserve water, so ramp up irrigation slowly! The impulse to crank up landscape watering is strong when temperatures get hotter. In early summer, when nights are still cool, gradually increase your sprinkler watering from three days to four. From there, keep an eye on your landscape and increase watering only as needed into June, July and August.
