Hose Efficiently

Use Your Hose Efficiently

People irrigating with a hose can take additional steps to avoid wasting water. Please note that hosing hardscape such as driveways, sidewalks, parking areas, and patios are permanently prohibited. Inefficient watering practices can lead to excessive water use and a high bill.


  • Don't water during hot or windy times of day
  • Always use a shut-off nozzle when irrigating. Shut off nozzles improves spray pattern and prevent water from being accidently left on.
  • Hand water dry spots along paved surfaces, so you don't water the pavement
  • Replace turf in hard to water areas like long narrow strips or slopes
  • Use a timer to remind you when it is time to shut it off or move to a new location
