 When Can I Water My Lawn?

The City of Manteca Water Conservation Program coincides each year with Daylight Savings Time. However, water conservation is needed by everyone all year long. If you think about water conservation before using water, it becomes easy to use less. The majority of over-use of water is landscape watering - the tendency for the majority of the population is to use more water than is necessary, which leads to run-off and waste.  

 







  1. Residences and businesses with odd-numbered addresses MAY water on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday but NOT BETWEEN Noon and 6:00 p.m.
  2. Residences and businesses with even-numbered addresses May water on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday but NOT BETWEEN Noon and 6:00 p.m.
  3. Every address MAY water on Sunday, but NOT BETWEEN Noon and 6:00 p.m.
