Century Glen HOA -- Supporting Neighbors and Our Community
Here are the guidelines for what day you can water your yard:
1) Odd-numbered street addresses on Mondays and Fridays.
2) Even-numbered addresses on Thursdays and Sundays.
Watering with sprinklers will be limited to eight minutes per station. Sprinklers with water-conserving nozzles will be limited to 15 minutes per station. All watering will have to be done in the evening or early morning, with no watering permitted outdoors between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Water restrictions do not apply to tree-watering. The Department of Public Works urge people to add mulch to their trees and to slow soak their mature trees once a month, especially between June and September. People should also avoid pruning and fertilizing their trees during hot, dry months.
The two-day watering restrictions will be enforced by the Conservation Response Unit, which will focus on areas that are using the most water.
Enforcement will begin with education for people who are violating the ordinance, but will escalate with fines and tickets if needed.
