  • All customers are required to reduce outdoor watering by at least 50 percent.
  • All customers are required to reduce outdoor irrigation to only two days a week:
    • Customers with addresses ending in even numbers (0, 2, 4, 6, 8) may water their landscape on Tuesdays and Fridays.
    • Customers with addresses ending in odd numbers (1, 3, 5, 7, 9) may water their landscape on Mondays and Thursdays.
