2014 Watering Guidelines

Last year's Stage 1 drought is still in effect. While conditions have improved, we advise that customers water a maximum of three days a week.

Standard Watering Guidelines

  • Water no more than three days per week (there are no assigned days).
  • Do not water lawns between 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.
  • Do not waste water by allowing it to pool in gutters, streets and alleys.
  • Do not waste water by letting it spray on concrete and asphalt.
  • Repair leaking sprinkler systems within 10 days.
  • Do not water while it is raining or during high winds.


Other tips

  • Use a day of rain to skip watering.
  • Only water the areas of your yard that are dry. For example, if shady areas look fine, only water the dry areas that get the most sun exposure.
  • Water two minutes less.

 

To help save water, the City of Arvada asks customers to pay close attention to the weather and their landscapes and only water when necessary.
