The Visalia City Council’s water conservation ordinance that implemented Stage 4 – Water Emergency, allows watering two days a week in May, and three days a week from June through September. In total, the changes will bring an estimated 25% annual reduction in landscape irrigation, which is responsible for about 60% of total water usage in the city.
In May, odd-numbered addresses will water on Tuesday and Saturday, even numbers on Wednesday and Sunday. During the summer months when three days a week are allowed, odd-numbered addresses will water on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, and even numbers on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.
