Where did summer go? Poof, man. Gone. That also means that the mandatory watering restrictions for Fall are once again in effect as of September 1st (and they’ll continue through October 31st, by the way).
The Southern Nevada Water Authority’s website says that the watering restrictions limit landscape irrigation to three assigned day per week now AND that this also applied to drip irrigation.
If you can’t remember what group you are in — you can check your water bill to find it out — but you can also use SNWA’s handy tool to verify your group by entering your address here.
- For Groups A, C and E — you can water on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
- For Groups B, D and F — you can water on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
[Sunday is NOT an optional watering day]
Here are a few more restrictions for ya, while we’re at it:
- Sprinkler watering is prohibited from 11am to 7pm until October 1st
- Mist systems at commercial businesses may not be used from September through May (bummer for Milo’s)
- Fountains are restricted at commercial and multi-family properties
- New grass is prohibited at commercial properties and new residential front yards
- Car washing requires the use of a positive shut-off nozzle to reduce water flow
Those are the broad strokes, but there is a bunch more information on the Fall Watering Restrictions provided on the SNWA’s website – which you can visit by clicking here.
