Stage 2 watering rules here to stay awhile

Some well-timed spring showers have kept things a little greener than we’re used to this time of year. But make no mistake – the drought continues and so do Stage 2 watering rules.

Also, did you remember to “spring forward” your irrigation system?

Replace your controller’s back-up batteries if it’s been a while and, most importantly, make sure the timer is set correctly.

Under Stage 2, watering with a sprinkler, irrigation system or soaker hose is allowed only from 7-11 a.m. and 7-11 p.m., one day a week, based on your street address. You can still hand-water any day, any time.

Stage 2 watering rules are being enforced. Follow them and you’ll avoid a citation.
