Watering on days other than assigned watering days and watering during restricted hours are considered water waste and may result in a fee.
Some parks may water outside an assigned watering day. These parks have customized watering schedules to allow them to water at times so the community can use the park. The parks must follow the time-of-day watering restrictions.
The Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) recommends you run sprinklers in three short, 4-minute cycles, about an hour apart. This cycle and soak method allows soil to absorb water slowly and reduces the risk of runoff, which is water waste. The best time to water is after sunset and before sunrise to reduce evaporation and to avoid late-day winds.
If you notice brown spots in your lawn, check your sprinklers to see if any of the heads are broken or twisted. Also check to see that your sprinklers are popping up 4 inches above the grass. You may water by hand with a hose. To break down surface tension and allow for better water absorption, add a tablespoon of liquid soap to a gallon of water and drench the brown spots with the mixture.

During fall, SNWA recommends running your drip irrigation system in a single cycle of 30 to 90 minutes, two days a week. The length of each watering should be determined by the emitter flow rate, soil type and weather conditions. See our drip watering tips for details.
