Aurora announces lawn watering restrictions

Aurora Water said Colorado has experienced lower-than-normal precipitation since 2020.

AURORA, Colo. — Lawn watering will be only permitted twice per week in Aurora this summer.

Aurora Water has announced water restrictions will go into effect May 1, 2023.

Starting May 1, Aurora's water availability status will be "Stage I." Under this stage, watering is permitted no more than two-days-per-week.

Even addresses will be allowed to water their lawns on Sundays and Thursdays. Odd addresses are permitted to water lawns on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Multi-family, HOA and non-residential areas can water Tuesdays and Fridays.

Hand watering of grass lawns follows the same guidelines as an automatic sprinkler system, Aurora Water said.

From May 1 to Sept. 30, watering is also not permitted between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. However, watering vegetable or flower gardens by hand is allowed between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.

New sod, seed and irrigation systems will require a permit.
