The City has a sprinkling policy for its municipal water system users in effect from June 1 to September 15 to ensure an adequate water supply to meet consumer and emergency needs.
The guidelines are easy to remember. Homes and businesses with addresses ending with an even number may water their lawns on even-numbered days; addresses ending in an odd number may sprinkle on odd-numbered days.
A waiver from this policy may be requested for newly seeded or sodded lawns, or newly planted trees or landscape materials. To obtain a waiver, please email your name, address and dates of watering to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do not have access to email you may also call 651-204-6000 to obtain a waiver.
An odd/even watering schedule is a helpful way to organize water use in the City, but in rainy weeks your lawn will likely not require watering. Visit our Watering Tips page for best practices on conserving water.
