Carson City Summer Water Restrictions

Every Drop Counts

To help protect one of our most precious resources, Carson City Municipal Code Ordinance #12.01.120 prohibits waste of water running along the street, gutter or storm drain.

Hand watering is allowed when flowers, shrubs and vegetables need a little extra. Please do not water when temperatures are too high or conditions are windy.

The following water restrictions are in effect from June 1 to September 30:

  • The watering schedule is three (3) days per week; the last number of your address determines your odd or even status.
        ODD  watering days are: Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
        EVEN watering days are:  Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
  • NO watering between 10:00 am and 6:00 pm.
  • NO watering on Mondays.

An exemption may be requested and is subject to approval. For more information, please call
887-2355 ext. 7397, or visit us at 3505 Butti Way, Carson City.


  • Carson City licensed commercial gardeners or commercial caretakers who are on the premises at the time watering is taking place
  • New lawns, for twenty-one (21) days from planting or installation
  • Vegetable gardens
  • Complexes that file for and receive approval of an irrigation plan
