Water-wise rules

 Water-wise rules

The new water-wise rules help us all to responsibly use an extremely limited resource. After all, we're a growing community in a semi-arid climate. And, we've learned that we can maintain vibrant, healthy landscapes in our community with responsible watering practices.

We support using water wisely across our region, state and community. We're committed to working together to account for shrinking water supplies, climate variability and a booming population.

Implementing the new water-wise rules is one way we can responsibly and efficiently use water for the benefit of our community, neighbors and our rivers.

There are 6 key water-wise rules you should know.

  1. Run sprinklers no more than 3 days per week. (You choose the days)
  2. From May 1 to Oct. 15, run sprinklers before 10 a.m. or after 6 p.m.
  3. Do not let water pool or flow across the ground.
  4. Repair leaking sprinkler systems within 10 days.
  5. Use a hose with a shut-off nozzle when washing vehicles and equipment.
  6. Only use water for cleaning outdoor surfaces, like driveways and sidewalks, to protect public health/safety.
