[ARCHIVED] Water Conservation

Hand adjusting sprinkler control

As the hot days of summer are behind us, the City is asking residents to cut back on outdoor watering by 30%.

We need conservation not just because we’re in a historic drought, but also because we don't know what this winter will bring. Saving water now means more water for next year which will be especially important if the drought continues.

So, if your sprinkler stations water for 30 minutes, cut them back to 20. Your lawn will still get the water it needs. A recent study showed that as a whole, Highland uses double the amount of water necessary for outdoor watering. 

Also, be sure to follow the City watering schedule listed below. Doing so will not only help in conservation efforts, but will also ensure that everyone can get the pressure they need to water.

  • Even Numbered Street Address: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
  • Odd Numbered Street Address: Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday
  • No Sunday Residential Watering, allowing the storage facilities to fill.
  • Watering hours shall be from 6:00 p.m. on the assigned day to 10:00 a.m. the following day.
