Landscape Watering Schedule 

ALL POWAY WATER CUSTOMERS

MONDAY, WEDNESDAY, AND FRIDAY

 WATER BEFORE 8:00 A.M AND AFTER 8:00 P.M.
  • Landscape irrigation using sprinklers is limited to no more than ten minutes maximum per watering station Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. This requirement does not apply to drip, micro-irrigation, or stream rotor systems. 
  • Watering of landscaped areas that are not irrigated by a landscape irrigation system may occur no more than three assigned days per week by using a hand-held container, hand-held hose with positive shut-off nozzle, or low-volume soaker hose.
  • Watering is not permitted during or within 48 hours after a measurable rain event.

The complete list of mandatory conservation measures associated with a Level 2 Declaration are defined in the Poway Municipal Code Chapter 8.94.

Poway’s Water Conservation Plan allows flexibility with these watering schedule restrictions for properties that have installed new low water-use landscaping. Recognizing that California-friendly plants need water to establish, the City Manager may grant an exemption or modification to these restrictions as necessary. The application form can be found here.
