The annual water conservation measures Stage 1 out of four stages.   Restrictions associated with Stage 1 drought include:

Landscape irrigation will be allowed two assigned days each week.  Addresses ending in 0, 3, 4, or 9 can water on Mondays and Thursdays.  Addresses ending in 1, 5, or 6 can water on Tuesdays and Fridays.  If the address ends in 2, 7, or 8, watering will be allowed on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

On a homeowners scheduled watering days, the restrictions only allow irrigations from midnight to 10:00am or from 6:00pm to midnight.

Until September 30, no irrigation will be allowed between 10:00am to 6:00pm.

Significant runoff should be avoided while only watering 1.5 inches each week.

If homeowners would like to water more than that, soaker hoses, drip irrigation, and hand watering are allowed on any day at any time.

The city’s restrictions also states that no one should irrigate if it’s raining.
