Watering Restrictions

Please remember the City of Elko New Market does have city code regarding the watering of lawns.

Conservation Measures:
  1. Odd/Even Restriction:  Use of the city water supply system for lawn or garden sprinkling or other irrigation shall be limited to an odd/even schedule corresponding to the property address effective each year from May 1 to September 30.  Lawn or garden sprinkling or other irrigation is not permitted between the hours of eleven o'clock (11:00) a.m. and six o'clock (6:00) p.m.

  2. Exception:  The watering of new seed or sod for a period of two (2) weeks from the date of seeding or sodding shall be excepted from the odd/even water use restrictions, but not the restriction on hours of sprinkling or irrigation.  This exception for seeded or sodded areas shall not apply to previously established areas of the same lot.

Emergency Restrictions:

Whenever the city council determines it in the public interest, the city council may, by resolution, further limit the use, times and hours during which water may be used from the city water supply system by giving notice by publication or by posting in the city hall and at such public places as the city council may direct.
