When drought restrictions are in effect, there may be occasional situations where watering rules cannot be reasonably followed. In these circumstances, a variance to the city ordinance may be requested. Variance requests are carefully reviewed and not all requests are granted.
New Landscape Variance
Request additional watering days during drought restrictions for new landscapes.
Request variance for water features that operate during drought with conservation in mind.
To keep playing surfaces safe, caretakers can request additional watering days.
Variance for properties that can't run all of their irrigation stations simultaneously on one day.
Power washing for health and safety exceptions may request a variance from SAWS.
