When clocks are turned forward on Saturday night, the City of Sacramento Department of Utilities reminds residents and businesses to change their irrigation schedules as well.
The City’s current irrigation rules, found in the Water Conservation ordinance state that at the beginning of daylight savings time, residents and businesses may water up to three days a week, based on their address. Addresses ending in odd numbers may water on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday only and even-numbered addresses may water on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. There is no watering allowed on Mondays. Watering of landscapes must be completed before 10 a.m. or after 7 p.m.
“While the ordinance allows customers to water their yards up to three days a week, we remind customers to continue to water with the weather. Do not water when it is raining and remember not to over-water and limit run-off from your property,” Utilities Director Marty Hanneman reminded Sacramento water customers.
Customers can call 3-1-1 or (916) 264-5011 to request a free Water Wise House call to help find ways to conserve water around their home and yard or to anonymously report water waste in their neighborhood.
