Water waste of any kind is subject to fines
New-lawn watering variances are available with proper soil amendment (four cubic yards of compost per 1,000 square feet of lawn). If a new lawn is installed you must apply for a permit/variance if you want to water more than three days per week.
Waste of water is prohibited at any time.
Sprinkler irrigation shall not occur between 12 p.m. and 5 p.m. May – August, even when water supplies are adequate.
Drip irrigation, low-volume spray or bubbling sprinklers, hose-end sprinklers, and weeping-type soaker hoses are allowed to water trees, shrubs, or flower beds at any time. Hand-watering of vegetables and flower gardens, trees and shrubs, and individual brown spots in a lawn is allowed at any time, so long as water waste does not occur.
Hand-watering means holding, in your hand, a hose with attached positive shutoff nozzle. It does not include operating a hose with a sprinkler or manually operating an irrigation controller.
Hand-watering to clean property, such as roof gutters, eaves, windows, or in preparation for painting, is allowed as long as water waste does not occur.
