2020 Watering Recommendations

Aurora Water's Landscape Watering Rules for 2020

  • Be sure to reprogram your automatic sprinkler system clock each month to follow the guidelines above.

  • Between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., watering vegetable or flower gardens by hand is allowed.

  • Hand watering (hose or manual sprinkler attachment) of grass lawns follows the same guidelines as an automatic sprinkler system. The three day a week and watering time conservation measures apply. 

  • Water waste such as excessive runoff, pooling water, and watering hard surfaces is not permitted. 

  • Do not allow water to pool in gutters, streets or alleys.

  • Sprinkler system leaks are required to be repaired or shut off to prevent waste.

  • Use a hose nozzle and shut-off valve when watering your garden or washing your car.

  • New sod, seed and irrigation systems require a permit. Call 303.739.7195 or click here for a permit application and additional information

  • Check your sprinkler system at the beginning of each month to ensure everything is working properly and not spraying concrete or asphalt. 

  • Do not water while it is raining or during high winds. Better yet, apply for a rain sensor or smart controller rebate, which may cover your costs. Click here for rain sensor or smart controller rebate information.

  • Report water waste violations.

We all need to do our part to save water. Please use water wisely.
