    Do these restrictions mean watering on Wednesdays, Saturdays and/or Sundays is prohibited? If so, it should be stated as so. Approximately 40% of the ~80 properties in my neighborhood are currently watering on those days.

      Good morning! No, these restrictions do not mean that all watering on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays are prohibited. Watering is still allowed on these days IF the landscape being watered is using a drip irrigation system or irrigation is by use of a hand-held bucket. Watering is also permitted for a short period of time if it is being used for adjusting or repairing irrigation systems or for maintenance of vegetation, including fruit trees and shrubs, intended for consumption. We expect residents to take some time to make this adjustment as we transition to this new watering schedule. In the meantime, our field staff is identifying residents who are not following the new watering schedule and providing them with education.
