The pressurized irrigation system is now fully activated. Click on “Read More” for the city’s landscape watering restrictions and information about watering lawns in April and May. As we begin another watering season, we encourage everyone to implement water conservation practices. Visit conservewater.utah.gov for info about water-wise plants and other methods of conserving water. Water is not a renewable resource, so we need to use it wisely!
Landscape Watering Restrictions
The city will continue to implement outdoor watering conservation measures for all residential water users. All odd-ending house numbers will be allowed to water Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. All even-ending house numbers will be allowed to water Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Additionally, spot watering with a hose is allowed on Sundays. Restrictions will be enforced with a warning for the first violation, a $50 fine for the second violation, and a $200 fine for the third and subsequent violations. The policy is in effect from April 15 to October 15. Commercial, church, park, and golf properties may be on different schedules, including daytime watering, to offset water demand.
Lawn Watering Guide for April and May
A typical Utah lawn has a water demand curve that begins in mid-April, rises to a peak in July, and then falls rapidly until mid-October. Please be advised that, according to State guidelines, no lawn irrigation is needed in April. The recommendation for May is 21 minutes every four days (double the time for rotary sprinklers).
