Time of Day Watering Restrictions in Effect

17 May, 2023

The City of Santa Fe’s Water Conservation Office reminds residents that Time of Day watering restrictions went into effect on May 1, 2023, and will remain in place through the end of October. No outside watering is permitted between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. and no more than three times per week.

Saving water is always in season in Santa Fe and these additional restrictions as the temperatures rise help prevent excess water loss due to evaporation during the hottest times of the day. Watering in the early morning or later evening hours is also healthier for plants. 

Visit the Water Conservation Office's website, www.savewatersantafe.com, for additional information about water-saving restrictions and requirements for homes and businesses. The website also contains many tips and resources to help save water, energy, and money, including appliance rebates, planting guidelines, free signage, and more.
