JCSA customers can use water outdoors for any purpose, at any time, on any day, as long as it is with a container or with a hose with an automatic shutoff nozzle. The hose must be attended at all times.
Any other method of outdoor water use, such as irrigation systems, sprinklers, or hoses without automatic shutoff nozzles, must follow the Outdoor Water Use Schedule, which is based on street address.
Customers with odd addresses can use water outdoors between midnight and 9 a.m. and between 5 p.m. and midnight on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. Neighborhood common areas are considered odd addresses.
Customers with even addresses can use water outdoors between midnight and 9 a.m. and between 5 p.m. and midnight on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
No outdoor water use is permitted between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. or on Mondays to allow for system recovery.
New turf (newly established lawn area) can be watered for up to 60 days from time of installation. Nursery stock and plant material can be watered on property where it is grown, produced, or sold. Licensed vehicle washing and pressure washing businesses are exempt from the regulations.
You will not receive credit water bill under the 60-day new turf exemption. The 60-day new turf exemption does not include a monetary credit. It is a waiver under the outdoor water use regulations allowing you to water new turf for 60 consecutive days instead of following the outdoor water use schedule.
