Watering days

Watering days shift to two days per week

Residential customers can water on Mondays and Fridays. Commercial customers can water on Mondays and Thursdays. Customers using drip irrigation are not subject to watering days.

Parks water smart

Learn how we're doing our part to save water in our parks and landscaping

We continue to invest in systems that are water smart, like using recycled water and converting areas of "passive" turf in parks to water wise landscapes.

As a water customer, we are required to meet the same level of reductions as businesses and residents. To meet the reduction goal, priority is being given to sports fields and trees followed by landscaping and "usable" park turf.

Learn more about how our parks are being water smart.
