El Paso - A new outdoor watering schedule for El Paso goes into effect tomorrow.
From April 1 through September 30, watering is permitted before 10am and after 6pm on designated days.
Properties with addresses that end in even numbers may be watered on Tuesdays, Thursdays or Saturdays.
Addresses ending in odd numbers may be watered on Wednesdays, Fridays or Sundays.
The city's water conservation ordinance makes wasting water a misdemeanor that can result in fines of up to $500.
The ordinance was enacted after evidence that a growing population led to heavy pumping from water supplies.
