Water-wise rules encourage the wise us of water all the time, no matter the season. Watering is allowed three days per week, before 10 a.m. and after 6 p.m. from May 1 to Oct. 15.
Temporary Watering Permits for Establishing Landscape Plants
Customers who need to water more frequently than three days per week with overhead sprinklers to establish new grass sod, seed or landscape plants can apply for an establishment permit.
An establishment permit will allow customers to water more frequently than three days per week and to water during the day when overhead sprinklers are normally not allowed. The permit will be valid for four to six weeks. Both residential and commercial water customers will need to apply for establishment permits.
An establishment permit is only needed for areas that will be watered with overhead sprinklers. Drip irrigation, watering cans and hose watering with a shut-off nozzle are allowed at any time under the water wise rules.
In 2020, there will not be an application fee, but one may be required in future years. More information about how to apply for an establishment permit will be posted as soon as it is available.
