Water Requirements


New sod or seed may require more frequent watering than the City's Summer Water Rules allow. In this case, you may obtain a permit by completing the online application or in-person during normal business hours.

Please review the specifics of your permit and the Plan for Wise Water Use(PDF, 1MB) which include watering allowances and requirements for soil preparation. Upon the City's inspection, a permit may be revoked for noncompliance.

NOTE: Even with a permit, watering is not allowed between 10 am and 5 pm.
