As most of you know, there are Las Vegas watering guidelines that govern when we can water our lawns and grasses. And as of September 1, it is time to “fall back” to watering only three days per week. But depending on what part of Henderson, Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Summerlin, or other area you live, the days on which you are allowed to water will vary. Click now for the official Las Vegas Valley Water District Watering and Sprinkler Schedule and Guide to determine your Las Vegas watering schedule.
Las Vegas Watering Schedule
The following is the official statement from the Las Vegas Valley Water District about the schedules: “Assigned watering groups are mandatory for all customers. Running your landscape irrigation system outside your assigned days is water waste and may result in a water-waste fee or citation.”
The District also offers several examples of Water Waste, and asks homeowners to be diligent and prudent about their water use in addition to keeping an eye on their surroundings. Here are some of the examples of Water Waste according the Las Vegas Water officials. Note: In November, the schedule moves to just one day per week.
Water waste is defined by the Service Rules as:
- Any Water District water you allow to flow or spray off your property
- Using landscape irrigation between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. from May 1 until Oct. 1.
- Failure to repair a malfunctioning device or supply line for more than 48 hours
- Discharging swimming pool or spa water off the property where discharge into a public sanitary sewer is available
- Non-compliance with watering group assignments as part of the mandatory watering schedule
- Non-compliance with regulations related to washing vehicles, equipment, driveways, parking lots, sidewalks, streets or other surfaces or objects
- Non-compliance with regulations relating to ornamental water features and misting systems

About 60% of all water use in Southern Nevada is used outdoors, and much of this water can’t be recycled. Much of the water used indoors can be recycled and that’s why it is so important to curb and preserve as much outdoor water as possible.
