How it works

Odd/even watering rationing requires that residential and business customers whose address ends with 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9 may water only on odd-numbered days (Jan. 17, Jan. 19, etc.) and customers whose address ends with 0, 2, 4, 6 and 8 may water only on even-numbered days (Jan. 18, Jan. 20, etc.).

How to save

• Residents are encouraged to conserve water and reduce their water bills by installing faucets that use less water, low-flow toilets and high-efficiency water-using appliances.

• Use drought-tolerant plant materials in landscaping or gardens.

• Avoid fertilizing, aerating, dethatching, top dressing or transplanting. Avoid new growth.

• City officials also remind customers that brown Bermuda grass is dormant, not dead. Water plants and shrubs less frequently, but deeply and thoroughly.
