Thank you, San José, for doing a great job saving water. Beginning July 1,2016, San José’s water conservation target will ease from 30 percent to 20 percent. With residents and businesses conserving water, and this past winter’s rainfall, San José’s water supplies have improved. Let’s continue to make our water conservation a lasting habit. Follow these outdoor water use rules this summer:
1) Water when it’s coolest – Water outdoors before 10 a.m. or after 8 p.m. when using a hand-held hose with automatic shut-off nozzle or a drip irrigation system.
2) If using a sprinkler system, watering hours are the same, but there are designated days: • Odd numbered addresses may water on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays • Even numbered addresses may water on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.
3) Water efficiently – Don’t let water flow into gutters or streets.
4) Sweep sidewalks and driveways instead of hosing off with water.
