WATER SCHEDULE CHANGES EFFECTIVE NOV 1ST
Two-day watering effective November 1 through March 31, 2022. Odd-numbered addresses can water on Wednesday and Sunday. Even-numbered addresses can water on Tuesday and Saturday.
Outdoor watering accounts for about one-third of the average family's water use. With calls for cities to reduce water consumption by 25% after California's historic drought, cities came up with new ways to encourage efficient water use.
By creating a watering schedule, the City of Modesto has effectively reduced water consumption and maintained sustainable practices. Outdoor watering days are staggered to cut down on daily outdoor water use. This has lessened the daily demand on the high-priority Modesto Subbasin
Following the watering schedule can also keep your outdoor plants healthy. Watering your lawn and other plants deeply instead of frequently will establish deeper, stronger roots that are more able to withstand drought and result in an overall healthier plant.
