On Saturday, July 20, at 9 a.m., a free water conservation workshop will be offered by the City of Sacramento Water Conservation Office. In the two-hour workshop, residents will learn how to rotate their sprinkler nozzles and why rotation is important. Additionally, attendees will learn tips on how to conserve water, how to use technology for smart irrigation and about the department’s water conservation ordinances.
If you’ve received a fine for watering on a nonwatering day, you may be able to have that fine waived by attending this workshop. Attendees may also pick up rebates for appliances and outdoor irrigation equipment.
This important workshop is held at the City of Sacramento Water Conservation Office and Demonstration Garden at 2260 Glen Ellen Circle in Sacramento.
Water conservation is an important topic at any time of the year, and the City of Sacramento established ordinances regarding watering days and times. Since March 10, 2013, residents are permitted to water their gardens up to three times each week based on the following guidelines.
If the address ends in an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7, 9), watering is permitted Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. For addresses ending in an even number (0, 2, 4, 6, 8), watering is permitted Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Watering is prohibited on Monday and between the hours of 10 a.m. and 7 p.m.
