  • Washing vehicles at home is allowed as long as your hose includes a shut off nozzle and water does not flow into the gutter unnecessarily.
  • Adjust your landscape watering according to the weather - don't water within 48 hours after measurable rain.
  • You may water your lawn on any day of the week but be mindful of how long you’re watering – water the lawn, not the street!
  • The best practice it to water between 8pm and 8am, to eliminate the natural evaporation that occurs when it’s warmer. Don’t water with sprinkler systems when it’s windy.
  • Use of ornamental fountains is allowed as long as it includes a recirculating pump.
  • You may fill swimming pools.
  • The City’s water conservation programs for turf replacement (“Cash for Grass”) and toilet replacement remain available and are highly encouraged. Call 647-4558 for more information.
