What is Assigned-Day Watering?

The Assigned-Day watering program is designed to help manage water use throughout the year. Note that the program only applies to your sprinklers. From Memorial Day through Labor Day, you are asked not to run sprinklers from 12 noon to 6 p.m. However, drip systems and hand watering of trees, shrubs, flower beds and vegetable gardens are permitted any day of the week.

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.
  • Adjust your irrigation clock according to watering needs.
  • 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.
