Watering Restrictions

Know When to Water Your Lawn

From May 1 through August 31 each year, lawn and landscape watering is restricted to odd-even days (based on house address) before 12:00 noon and after 6:00 pm. Watering is prohibited between 12:00 noon and 6 pm each day for all residents. Only those with new sod or landscaping are allowed to water outside the restricted times for the first 30 days after installation. Please contact the Public Works Department if you have any questions about the watering restrictions by calling (651) 322-2022.


Per City Code (Title 4, Chapter 1, Article A-3), violators of this restriction maybe be subject to misdemeanor charges.
