Las Cruces' spring and summer daytime watering restrictions have been lifted for fall and winter.
The restrictions prohibit residents from watering between the hours of 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. to reduce evaporation losses. The restrictions are in effect from April 1 to September 30 each year.
When the restrictions are in effect, the Las Cruces Utilities Water Conservation Ordinance and Regulations allows customers with even-numbered addresses to water outside vegetation on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Residents with odd-numbered addresses are permitted to water their vegetation on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. No watering is permitted on Mondays.
The Las Cruces Utilities Water Conservation Program has a 24-hour recorded hotline to report water waste. The number is 575/528-4444
Violations of the Water Ordinance and Regulations may include:
- Watering on the wrong day.
- Water leaving the property or ponding on the property, and,
- Not using a bucket and shut-off nozzle to wash vehicles or pavement.
When calling, provide day, time, and location or address. The TTY number, for people who are hearing impaired, is 575/528-3541.
Las Cruces Utilities encourages residents to use water wisely to conserve for future demand.
