Even though the first day of summer is June 20, the City of Turlock’s summer water schedule is already in effect and in its second stage.
The water schedule in Turlock is a year round water conservation program that has houses ending on even numbers or on odd numbers watering on different days. For summer in particular, outdoor water is limited to two days a week. In winter and fall months, the City encourages Turlockers to turn off their sprinkler systems.
Up until May 31, even numbered homes were allowed to water on Tuesdays and Saturdays, and odd numbered homes watered on Wednesdays and Sundays. According to the City of Turlock, watering times were allowed before 6 AM and after 9 PM, and on weekends before noon.
From June 1 to October 31, the schedule in effect will see the same watering days, but the allowed water times on weekdays will be changed to before 9 AM and after 7 PM.
As a reminder, there is no watering during or within 48 hours after measurable rainfall..
Turlockers with newly planted lawns will be allowed daily watering until the second mowing of their lawn. Call the Municipal Services Department at 668-5590 to be placed on the exemption list when installing a new lawn.
The City of Turlock encourages citizens to conserve water when possible.
