Are there other rules for watering outdoors?

In addition to restrictions on lawn watering, there are several other restrictions, the most common of which include:

  • Water cannot be used to clean driveways or sidewalks.
  • Water cannot run off onto an adjacent property.
  • A shut-off nozzle must be used when washing a vehicle with a hose.
  • Outdoor water structures, such as a fountain, can only operate with internal water-recirculating capabilities.
  • Non-functional turf (lawns not used for recreation) may not be watered at commercial, industrial, and institutional properties, unless recycled water is used.

There are no restrictions on hand watering, drip irrigation systems, or micro-spray irrigation.
