If you want to water your lawn, you better know the rules. The city of Waconia is cracking down and there are a few rules.
First, odd even days. If your house number is odd, you can water on odd days. Even house number, then even days.
Second, no watering between 10am and 5pm. No matter what your house number is or what day it is. The city doesn’t want to run low so they are restricting use to only early/late hours.
If it gets hot and dry, they may enforce even stricter rules. So be careful.
From what I hear, the first offense may be just a warning, then a ticket after that. It could cost you hundreds if you don’t listen. And, if you’ve been warned in previous years, that counts as your free warning this year.
What I’m un-clear on is if these are still enforced if I water my garden with the hose for a few minutes. No sprinkler action, but just soaking it down. Anyone know?
Sure a green lawn is nice, but don’t push it.
