City Council Approves Update To Water Conservation Code

Irrigation Schedule (Twitter Post) - Copy

—As the City of Pullman enters its second irrigation season following the implementation of Pullman City Code, Chapter 10B (Water Conservation) an adjustment to the watering window portion of our irrigation guidelines was approved by Pullman City Council. Pullman’s irrigation guidelines are now as follows:

  • Season - June 1 to September 30
  • Schedule - assigned watering days based on even-odd addresses
  • Watering Window – WAS - opens at 6 PM and closes at 10 AM the following day
    • IS NOW – before 10 AM and after 6 PM on your assigned watering day.

“Throughout the first irrigation season, it became apparent the watering windows were not as user-friendly as intended. The City Council approved this updated code, to hopefully make it easier for residents and businesses in Pullman to follow” said Cristin Reisenauer, facilitator of the City’s water conservation programs.

There are automatic exemptions in place for various construction and home maintenance activities. These guidelines are for outdoor irrigation only. For example, running through the sprinkler is considered recreating, and therefore is not subject to the parameters identified. Similarly, washing a vehicle at your home is not subject to the irrigation guidelines.

Handheld irrigation, while someone is physically present is ALWAYS allowed, and not subject to the irrigation season, schedule, or watering window.

NEVER should a hose, or another water source, be left running, allowing water waste or irrigation water to be applied to non-landscaped spaces.
