Commercial properties may water on Fridays only.
Irrigation systems at commercial properties are larger and are often located in areas in town that are more visual, so it is more noticeable when these properties are not following the Lawn & Landscape Watering Policy. If commercial properties are not following the policy (they are allowed to water Fridays only but not between noon and 5 p.m.), they are subject to the same fines as residential properties and homeowners associations.
Like residential properties, commercial properties may apply for a special use watering permit for new seed or sod, which allows watering daily for up to two weeks. With this permit, the property must still comply with the no watering between noon and 5 p.m. rule. City staff assesses permit applications and monitors the sites during the permitted time. There is a limit of two permits per year for each property.
