When are water restrictions in effect?

To ensure adequate water supply during hot summer months, the City of Burnsville has an odd-even day watering policy in place April 1 through Sept. 30 of each year. Mid-day watering is not efficient and results in large amounts of water being lost to evaporation. No lawn or garden sprinkling or other irrigation can take place between 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on any day.  This applies to all residential and commercial properties.  

During watering restrictions, homes with even-numbered addresses may water their lawns before 11 a.m. or after 3 p.m. on even-numbered calendar dates. Homes with odd-numbered addresses may water their lawns before 11 a.m. or after 3 p.m. on odd-numbered calendar dates. Multi-family residences with multiple addresses, businesses with multiple addresses and structures without an apparent address may water before 11 a.m. or after 3 p.m. on odd numbered days.

Whenever there are thirty-one (31) days in a month, the thirty first day is a day both odd and even numbered properties can water before 11 a.m. or after 3 p.m.
