One-Day a Week Outdoor Water Use Schedule Begins Today

The City of Fresno begins its one-day a week Outdoor Water Use Schedule today, November 1, and will remain in effect through March.  We encourage residents to take time to reprogram their sprinklers to reflect the new schedule.

The one-day a week schedule takes effect in an effort to conserve water during the cooler months of the year.  Outdoor watering is considered water usage for areas such as lawns, gardens, pools, and other items that require irrigation or hoses.

Residents with addresses ending in odd numbers (1,3,5,7,9) can water on Saturdays.  Residents with addresses ending in even numbers (0,2,4,6,8) can water on Sundays.  Outdoor water use is not allowed on weekdays or on any day between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.  Customers can call 3-1-1 if they have questions or need assistance.

On April 11, 2019, the Fresno City Council approved a new, simplified watering schedule.  The City will implement a one-day a week watering schedule for the months of November through March and a three-day a week watering schedule during the months of April through October.  The City of Fresno continues to urge its residents to conserve water as much as possible.
