Ahh, springtime in El Paso. When temperatures begin the rapid rise from warm to hot, and what little green we do get begins to sprout.

This time of the year also marks the beginning of the time-of-day watering schedule change.

As we collectively begin prepping our gardens and yards it’s important to remember two things: (1.) We live in a desert and water is even more precious in our barren landscape, and (2.) You can’t just water whenever you want, there are seasonal watering schedules to observe.

El Paso Spring/Summer 2023 Time-of-Day Watering Schedule

Automatic sprinklers watering lawn

From April 1 through September 30, 2023, El Paso residents may only water outdoor before 10 a.m. and after 6 p.m. on their designated days.

The conservation measure is designed to reduce water loss that occurs as temperatures rise and evaporation increases.

If you have an even-numbered home address, your designated days to water are Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Odd-numbered addresses should limit watering to Wednesdays, Fridays and/or Sundays. All before 10 a.m. or after 6 p.m.

Violations of the ordinance can result in a fine for watering at the wrong time, watering on the wrong day, or “allowing water to flow into public right of way or storm water drainage system.”
