What is Assigned-Day Watering?

The Assigned-Day watering program is designed to help manage water use during the summer months, the period of highest water use in the Reno area. It is in effect from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

The program is a function of the Truckee Meadows Water Authority (TMWA), our main water utility. It spreads out demand on the system and gives everyone a chance to sufficiently water lawns and landscaping. The system helps keep costs down and helps TMWA better meet demand.

What are My Watering Days?

Assigned-Day watering applies to your sprinklers and/or automatic sprinkler system. Who can water when is based on the last number of your home's street address.

  • Even number address: water on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
  • Odd number address: water on Sundays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
  • No watering for anyone on Mondays.
  • No watering between noon and 6 p.m. from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
  • Don't water during the heat of the day or when it's raining or windy.
  • Drip systems and hand watering of vegetables, trees, shrubs, and flowers any day.

More Information from TMWA

Much of the municipal water we enjoy originates in Lake Tahoe, giving us some of the best and cleanest city water in the country. Here is for information to help you enjoy, conserve, and protect this valuable (but not unlimited) resource.

How to Report Water Wasters

This is serious business when you live in a desert. To report a water waster, you can use TMWA's online water waste reporting form or call the TMWA conservation hotline at (775) 834-8005.
