EL PASO — New spring and summer watering schedules go into effect on Monday, April 1st in El Paso and Las Cruces.
Watering is not allowed on Mondays. Even numbered addresses can water on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays before 10:00 a.m. and after 6:00 p.m. Odd numbered addresses water on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
According to El Paso Water Utilities, watering in the morning or evening minimizes evaporation, which means more water actually gets to your lawn.
The city ordinance will be in effect until September 30.
A violation could result in a fine of up to $500.
