State water cuts went into effect June 1, and City of San Diego customers are mandated to cut our collective water usage by 16%. To meet this requirement, we'll need your help.
Reducing landscape irrigation is the best way to meet that 16% reduction goal. We are urging customers to cut the watering of their landscapes to no more than two days per week, for 5 minutes per day.*  Also, to reduce evaporation and get the most out of your watering, water only after 6 pm and before 10 am. Below is a schedule of watering days for San Diegans.
*The 5-minutes-per-day time limit does NOT apply to landscape irrigation systems using water-efficient devices, including drip and micro-irrigation systems and stream rotor sprinklers. However, these water-efficient systems should follow the two-day-per-week schedule above, as well as the time-of-day schedule requiring that you water no earlier than 6 pm and no later than 10 am.
