Outdoor Watering Regulations

When it's time to water, be sure to follow the Town's year-round watering ordinances including the Alternate Day Watering (ADW) Ordinance. If you irrigate with reclaimed, well or pond water you are exempt from the ADW Ordinance.
If you are establishing new grass or reseeding, you may apply for a 45-day exemption to the ADW schedule to water as needed.

An irrigation permit is required prior to installing an automatic system.
