Time of Day Water Restrictions In Effect – Only Irrigate Between 8 pm and 8 am

In 2006, the City of Prescott adopted a Time of Day Outdoor Watering restriction to improve the community's efforts for conservation-minded irrigation and to meet state water conservation requirements. From April 15 through November 1, City of Prescott residents must water outdoors only between 8:00 pm and 8:00 am.

When is the BEST time to water?

Residents are encouraged to set irrigation timers to run between 2am and 6am because daily temperatures, winds, and evaporation rates are typically at their lowest during these early morning hours. This means you get the most out of your watering which saves you money and conserves local water resources. In addition, early morning watering is a better time for most plants to uptake water since they are less stressed than during the heat of the day.

For more information about water conservation and water smart landscaping visit the water conservation section of the City's website.
