  • Reclaimed water customers may water any day, but are discouraged from watering between the hours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Certain entities such as golf courses, agricultural areas, and high volume sports and recreational facilities have exceptions to these restrictions.

Variance for Installation of New Sod or Landscaping


Newly installed landscaping may be watered on any day during the first 30 days after planting, and every Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday during days 31-60.

However, you still may not irrigate between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Avoid installing new landscaping during droughts as it will be more difficult for roots to establish and more water will be required. 

Notify Us

Per city ordinance, when installing new sod or landscaping, residents have 30 days during which they may irrigate every day. In order to prevent receiving a watering violation during this period, residents must first coordinate with the Water Conservation Division. Although residents will be exempt from receiving watering violations, they are not exempt from the applicable water rates (PDF). Please note that rates increase proportionally with increased usage, and increased watering will result in a high water bill.
Please email your name, phone number, address, and any receipts for sod and/or landscape purchases to If you have any questions, please call the Utilities Administrative office at (407) 905-3159.
