Las Vegas watering guidelines mandate we change our watering clocks on March 1st. The Las Vegas Valley Water District says:
“Assigned watering days are mandatory for all customers. Running your landscape irrigation system outside your assigned days… may result in a water-waste fee or citation. It’s always a good idea to water less often than permitted. Increase the schedule only if your landscape needs more water.”
Mandatory watering restrictions limit landscape irrigation to three assigned days per week from March 1 through April 30. Sprinkler watering on Sundays is prohibited. Watering on days other than assigned watering days and watering during restricted hours are considered water waste and may result in a fee.
Spring Drip Irrigation
Drip irrigation is needed less frequently than sprinkler irrigation. During spring, we recommend that you run 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.
If your plants appear stressed, check the soil moisture. If the soil is wet, your plants may be overwatered. Water less often or for less time. Drip irrigation may occur on any day, but must not exceed three days a week.
Daylight Savings Time Change
Don’t forget to set your irrigation clock ahead an hour when daylight saving time begins on the second Sunday in March at 2 a.m. This also is a great time to check your clock’s batteries.
